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]

- Perry Noble begins a series on four areas any Christian Minister/Ministry will face.
- This article asks a collection of people involved in Children’s Ministry what they think of the issue of children’s baptism. I like this new feature from Ministry-to-Children.comfeature so much that I wrote a separate blog entry about it last week
- In this final installment of this series, Jabberfrog looks at the skill of giving to God.
- From Stuff Christians Like, this is actually an older post revisited, but I liked #7 in the list so much that I decided to include it in this week’s Blog Patrol.
- In this article, Trevin Wax challenges Pastors to preach large sections of Scripture from memory.
- From Charlie Wallace, this article on complaining starts “Ironically, parents complain that one of the areas of parenting that is most frustrating to them is when their children complain.”
- From Between Two Worlds, this is a transcription of a sermon preached by Dr. Russell Moore in which he looks at how the Devil tries to usurp the power of the Gospel. I have not read the transcript but listened to the sermon several weeks ago. It is well worth a read and a listen!
Welcome to this week’s installment of “The Blog Patrol.” I’ve tried to get back to the basics with this weeks’ Blog Patrol. In past weeks I have included more links for each day, but my goal with this process has been to include only the best posts. The problem I have been having is that there are so many good posts out there. That said, I have done my best to pick the best of the best for inclusion in the Blog Patrol, and tried to accept that that means that some good posts will be excluded. I hope that this process will help to keep the Blog Patrol more concise and useful to you the reader. If you have any suggestions for blogs that have not been featured in the Blog Patrol, please let me know. I look forward to hearing from you.
These are the stragglers from the prior week which I either didn’t receive or find in time to include in last week’s Blog Patrol. Enjoy!
