I read a letter from inJesus today
saying that action was required. It was speaking about
managers needing to sign up with the new service, if
they wanted to continue with inJesus.
CONFIRMATION: Later one of
our QW Class members had written a Word titled “Action.”
As I pondered this, the word “action” reminded me of the
many times Jesus asked the person who was wanting
something from Him, to do some kind of action. Like for
instance in the following, the man with the hand was
told to arise, stand and stretch out his hand.
But He knew their thoughts, and
said to the man who had the withered hand, "Arise and
stand here." And he arose and stood. 9 Then Jesus said
to them, "I will ask you one thing: Is it lawful on the
Sabbath to do good or to do evil, to save life or to
destroy?" 10 And when He had looked around at them all,
He said to the man, "Stretch out your hand." And he did
so, and his hand was restored as whole as the other.
GRAM: WHAT IS FAITH? 4/01/09
Faith is my
persuaded, moral conviction of God’s truth.
As I believe, so I
am. As I believe, so I become.
It is impossible
to have faith without action because
To have faith
without works is dead.
Have I pleased God
by living what I believe?
Rom 14:23 NKJV
For whatever is not from faith is sin.
Heb 11:5-6 NKJV
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.
FAITH is the assurance (the confirmation, the title
deed) of the things [we] hope for, being the proof of
things [we] do not see and the conviction of their
reality [faith perceiving as real fact what is not
revealed to the senses].
What are you asking of God right now, and what is He
asking you to do in order to receive it?
