Hebrews 11:1—Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
Romans 10:17—So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God.
2 Corinthians 4:16,18—Therefore we do not lose heart…We fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.
Romans 1:16-17—For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for anyone who believes, for the Jew first and also the Greek. For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith, as it is written, “The just shall live by faith.”
Faith is when we believe in God the Father, His Son Jesus the Christ, and the Holy Spirit; even though we have never seen this Holy Trinity. Faith is a spiritual preference. When we have a true faith in God there is no room for doubt. This is where our hope comes from. Faith is having joy in your heart all the time even when things are not going well. You either believe or you don’t. He implanted faith in us and He will help us grow in our faith when we choose to believe and accept Christ.
I have the Christian Faith. I believe that Jesus Christ is my personal savior. I believe He died on the cross for me. He also did this for you. I have faith that the Bible is the truth—they are the inspired words from God. In the Scripture –2 Timothy 3:16 God tells us—‘All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness.’ This is all I need for proof because in my heart I believe God is all truth-He cannot lie. He is holy and pure and everything good—there is no evil in Him.
Faith is not just head knowledge, but believing with your whole heart. I have faith in God and I trust Him. I do not see His faithfulness, but I believe He always is because I know He is always there for me no matter what. He has promised that He will never leave nor forsake us. By faith, I believe He is always present (omnipresent)—everywhere at the same time. Also, He is all-knowing (omniscient)–He knows when our life will begin and when it will end, and He is all-powerful (omnipotent).
God can only speak truth, so when He says He will fulfill all His promises, I believe that He will. Faith in God helps me not fear death because I know I will be going to heaven when I die.
John 8:32—And you shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free.
His ways are the best ways, His ways give you freedom to live a righteous life and you may have confidence in knowing in your heart that you will go to heaven when you die. So what is there really to worry about? If we die in Christ, we will live where there will be no more pain, or sadness, or evil, or danger. I’m not afraid to die, are you?
John 4:24–God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in Spirit and Truth.
