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.



·       Fruit is the natural byproduct of a seed.

·       The fruit of faith is works.

·       The fruit of faith is righteousness.


Matt 17:20 NKJV

For assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there,' and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you.


James 2:16 NKJV

Thus also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.


Gal 3:6-7 NKJV

Abraham "believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness."  


1 John 3:7 NKJV

Little children, let no one deceive you. He who practices righteousness is righteous, just as He is righteous.




NT:4102 pistis (pis'-tis); from NT:3982; persuasion, i.e. credence; moral conviction (of religious truth, or the truthfulness of God or a religious teacher), especially reliance upon Christ for salvation; abstractly, constancy in such profession; by extension, the system of religious (Gospel) truth itself:

KJV - assurance, belief, believe, faith, fidelity.




NT:2041 ergon (er'-gon); from a primary (but obsolete) ergo (to work); toil (as an effort or occupation); by implication, an act:

KJV - deed, doing, labour, work.




NT:3498 nekros (nek-ros'); from an apparently primary nekus (a corpse); dead (literally or figuratively; also as noun):

KJV - dead.


Heb 11:1 AMP

NOW 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].




NT:5287 hupostasis (hoop-os'-tas-is); from a compound of NT:5259 and NT:2476; a setting under (support), i.e. (figuratively) concretely, essence, or abstractly, assurance (objectively or subjectively):

KJV - confidence, confident, person, substance.


·       However works does not produce faith.

·       Nor does righteousness produce faith.


When we do deeds in order to have faith, we are following the law in order to feel justified.  This is self righteousness.  Without faith in Jesus Christ, no man is righteous, no not one.  The only way to produce faith, is to abide in Jesus Christ.


John 15:4 AMP

Dwell in Me, and I will dwell in you. [Live in Me, and I will live in you.] Just as no branch can bear fruit of itself without abiding in (being vitally united to) the vine, neither can you bear fruit unless you abide in Me.
