Faith that Works

The truth is, without faith it is impossible to please God.
    • Many question and criticize the way we use faith, and teach others to use it.

      The truth is, without faith it’s impossible to please God, and we can only reach Him through faith.

      But what really impresses me is God’s willingness to honor anyone who use this tool, this power.

      When two blind men cried out to the Lord Jesus for healing, Jesus responded firmly:

      “Do you believe that I am able to do this?” They said to Him, “Yes, Lord.” Then He touched their eyes, saying, “According to your faith let it be to you.” (Matthew 9:28-29)

      This shows that God responds to faith that’s pure, bold and triggered by revolt.

      No one’s life changes when they complain about misery, failure, destruction, disease and family quarrels. What does change all these things is a faith that’s in revolt, and this kind of faith demands surrender. It demands that we place our entire lives on the Altar!

      God gives His BEST to those who accept Him as the GOD of their lives. That’s what He did when He gave His Son, the Lord Jesus, as the PERFECT SACRIFICE for humanity.

      The same thing happens when people sacrifice their lives on the Altar today. They receive His best because they PUT GOD’S WILL FIRST, and so He responds by saying: “According to your faith let it be to you.”

      Let’s stop complaining, and instead, REACT! Revolt. Draw the sword of faith.

      Through faith we are not only able to win life’s battles, but also every spiritual battle, and even take hold of eternal salvation.
