Living By Faith

The term "Living by Faith", has been diluted in the hearts and minds of a large number of people, in today's world. It seems as if folks are content with just believing that Jesus Christ lived, died, and rose again, and will return one day to execute judgement on his and their enemies. As if this is enough to get them a spot in the most coveted retirement place of all. Heaven.

This type of faith is a lie perpetuated by the Devil and his followers, to lead those who are seeking to be saved by God's grace, astray, as soon as they hear the Word of God spoken. The true cup of faith, brought to us by Jesus, contains quite a bit more substance than that.

In the Holy Bible, Hebrews chapter 11 verse 1 teaches, "Faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen. Verse 2 of that chapter tells us that the elders of faith obtained a good report by faith. This chapter goes on to explain that faith is how we understand, the worlds were framed by the Word of God.

Hebrews continues to explain how those elders, spoken of in verse 2, obtained favor with God through their faith. Some of them received what they believed for while living, and some after because, though the promise was to them, it was not on them.

The true faith of God in Jesus, requires action on the part of the believer in every case. As the elders, that were mentioned in Hebrews, moved in obedience to God, we as believers, must also move in obedience to God.
