Disciples Never Cease to Live by Faith

Disciples Live By Faith

I am not into self-help, positive confession, or positive thinking.

I am into what the LORD God of the Bible says.

The God of the Bible gives me faith filled optimism simply because I believe what He has written in His Word.

The Bible¬†says, “Faith comes by hearing and¬†hearing by the Word of God” – Romans 10:17.

We need to read the Bible and study the Bible because we want to hear His truth with the ears of our hearts and receive the faith of God that is the result of hearing the Word of God.

Faith is necessary, for without faith we can never please God: “But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for He who comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him” Hebrews 11:6.

We need to live a life that is pleasing to God and worthy of the Gospel we say we believe by faith – Hebrews 11.

By faith in Christ, we can live empowered by Christ to the glory of Christ – Romans 6-8.

To live the Christ empowered life, we need faith in Him: who He is, what He has accomplished, and what He is yet to do. We learn these truths about Him through the Scriptures. As we learn the Scriptures, we are to believe them and do them: “But you be doers of the word and not hearers only deceiving your own selves” – James 1:22.

Our life in Christ, lived through Christ, all begins with faith in Christ and continues by faith in Christ: “I am crucified with Christ, nevertheless I live; yet, not I, but Christ lives in me, and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God who loved me and gave Himself for me” – Galatians 2:20.

As disciples of Christ Jesus our Lord, we are to never cease to live by faith: “For we walk by faith not by sight” – 2 Corinthians 5:7.

Can I Be Forgiven?

SeasetWe need our sins forgiven.

That is the one issue between God and man – our sins.

God wants humanity to know that sin separates us from Him; however, He has made provision for our sins – His Son, Jesus Christ.

God has ordained Jesus Christ to be the Judge of the living and the dead. Jesus, our Judge, died on the cross for our sins – this was God’s will.

God wants to save us from the judgment that is coming for the world’s sins (all our sins combined) against Him. We will be condemned to hell if we chose not to be forgiven through faith in Jesus Christ. When we reject Jesus Christ as our God and Savior, we remain enemies of God. Instead of loving God, we chose to love our sin.

Our sins can only be forgiven “through His name” and “whoever believes in Him shall receive forgiveness of sins” – Acts 10:43. God will forgive us is we will believe in Jesus Christ: that He is God, that He died on the cross for our sins, and that He rose again from the dead on the third day.

Forgiveness can only be granted by God, Himself. He said that if we believe in His Son, Jesus Christ, then He will forgive

of our sins.

May you believe in the Son of God – Jesus Christ – who died on the cross for our sins and rose again from the dead.

He is alive. He is the truth. He is what you are missing.

May the Lord Jesus reveal Himself to you.

God bless.
