By May 5, 2017 No Comments

Romans 1:17 
For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.

James 2:4
Are ye not then partial in yourselves, and are become judges of evil thoughts?

Galatians 3:11
But that no man is justified by the law in the sight of God, it is evident: for, The just shall live by faith.

Hebrews 10:38
Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him.

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

We are to live by hearing God’s Word.

Hebrews 11:1,6
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. But without faith it is impossible to please him : for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

God responds to and rewards faith.

Hebrews 11:3
Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.

Framed means put together and assembled

There has to be an order of faith.

Hebrews 11:1
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

Faith gives you the picture on the box…gives hope

Vision/hope will keep you disciplined.

Proverbs 29:13
The poor and the deceitful man meet together: the Lord lighteneth both their eyes.

Your hopes will never become a reality without faith.

God does not give a picture that can’t become a reality.

Psalm 119:133 
Order my steps in thy word: and let not any iniquity have dominion over me.

Rest in the integrity of God’s Word

James 2:14-20
What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? can faith save him? If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily food, And one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be ye warmed and filled; notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to the body; what doth it profit? Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone. Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works.  Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble. But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?

There should be a manifestation of your faith in action.

Have an intentional order to your faith.

Hebrews 11:1
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

James 2:14-20
What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? can faith save him? If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily food, And one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be ye warmed and filled; notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to the body; what doth it profit? Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone.  Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works. Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble. But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?

True faith comes from the Word of God.

Meditate on the Word you have heard.

Romans 10:8,14 
But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach; How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?
