It is impossible to please God without faith (Hebrews 11:6). Accordingly, faith seemed like the next logical topic for the I believe series. So, without further ado, here is what I believe about faith:
What Is Faith?
- Faith is the substance of things asked for [Hebrews 11:1]
- Faith is the conviction of things unseen [Hebrews 11:1]
- Faith involves waiting for things to come [Hebrews 11:13]
- Faith is a shield [Ephesians 6:6]
- Faith is a breastplate [1 Thesalonians 5:8]
- Faith is most holy [Jude 1:20]
Where Does Faith Come From?
- Christ is the author of our faith [Hebrews 12:2]
- Christ is the perfecter of our faith [Hebrews 12:2]
- Faith is a gift of the Holy Spirt [1 Corinthians 12:9]
- Our faith is through Christ and equal to all saints [2 Peter 1:1]
