March 2012 - del 2 - Live by faith.

Next step on the path of faith is: "Saved by faith, now LIVE BY FAITH! Faith is our life as Christians, and faith is a part of our identity: We are believers! We believe in the gospel. It's an exciting life, relationship and cooperation with God!

The life of faith is a naturally supernatural life with God every day!
Faith is pleasuring God. God wants us more and more will enter the life of fatih - for it is by faith we live with God.
Romans 5: 17 says: For if by one man's offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.)
The challenge is: We must keep away from "God is doing it - if he wants - when he wants." That is religion! Christian faith is: By faith you shall possess life and gain control - in other words: You can set the agenda and create change in your life by faith! Don´t lose elasticity and the expectations in the faith! The just shall live by faith. Faith connects you to God! And God will is clearly stated in the Bible.

A. Faith
a Egil Strand commentary: Absolute trust, complete surrender, wholehearted obedience.
b Strong's and Moffat's translation: Faith is the conviction
c Sarah's faith: Through faith also Sara herself received strength to conceive seed, and was delivered of a child when she was past age, because she judged him faithful who had promised.
Heb.11:11

B. PROOF OF FAITH = (FULL confidence and security).
Hebrews 11, 1 says: Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
Heb.11:1. The word for "evidence" means "that which is under" - that "foundation". Therefore, faith is foundation - faith is the confidence - faith is security ... for what? For what you hope for. Berkley bible commentary says: Faith forms a secure foundation for what is hoped for, the promises of God.

Conclusion: It is crucial that you know what God has spoken so you can believe it - if you do not know it, you can not have faith. But when you know it - then you can believe and be convinced!

So what do we know?
Salvation is for everyone because the word of God says: ALL those who received him, he gave power to become children of God (Your salvation, salvation, family, friends save ..) Believe God for salvation!
What do we know?
Healing is for everyone because God's Word says: "By his wounds we have been healed"!
Bosworth said: "Faith is where the word of God is known and accepted."
Read the Word, meditate on the word, let the word be a part of you - faith comes forth!

Conversation:
The Bible has strong promises for his people. Talk about the promises of God's word that you can believe in. God has given us the promises so that we can experience them by faith.
Key words: prayer and answers to prayer, provision, safety and protection, He will never forsake you etc. ..
