Faith

In our Sunday School class, we have been reading the “faith chapter”, Hebrew 11.  But how do we get Faith?   Belief is not the same thing as Faith. Faith is belief and trust combined, as when Peter walked on the water. Peter did not take time to examine or consider. Jesus bid him to come, and he stepped out and walked on the water. When he took the time to examine where he was or consider what he had done, then his faith went away and he begin to sink.

Apostle Paul wrote in 2 Timothy 1: 12-14, “ For the which cause I also suffer these things: nevertheless I am not ashamed: for I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day.  Hold fast the form of sound words, which thou hast heard of me, in faith and love which is in Christ Jesus.  That good thing which was committed unto thee keep by the Holy Ghost which dwelleth in us.”

So Faith is believing and trusting, in spite of changing conditions or situations.  Faith cannot be based on the ups and downs of life or the changing of our conditions. It has to be based and settled on what we have decided is true, and to what we have committed ourselves.

Romans 10:17 says, “ So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.”

By staying in the word of God, or the Bible, we can build our belief and trust into Faith, which will carry us through those times of doubt and trials.
