You Can Have Living Faith

You Can Have Living Faith

What is faith, and how do we receive it and grow in it?

We live in a society that is virtually devoid of faith. Since most people don't read the Bible, they don't know much about God or believe He even exists. What about you - do you lack the faith to believe in God?

Having true faith will help you make sense out the troubling and confusing world you live in. It will give you the confidence you need to move forward with your life despite trials and setbacks.

How do you get faith?

Growing in faith requires believing in God and maintaining a close relationship with Him. You can have this relationship with God through daily prayer, Bible study and applying what God says in the Scriptures in your personal life.

Lack of faith—an active, living trust in and relationship with God—is a widespread problem affecting every nation and virtually every individual (p. 3).

If we want to better our lives, our model for living faith should be Jesus Christ (p. 7).

Many people don't have the faith described in the Bible because they do not believe or practice what Jesus said: "If you love Me, keep My commandments" (John 14:15 John 14:15If you love me, keep my commandments.

The Bible tells us salvation is by God's grace and is not earned by good works "lest any man should boast" (Ephesians 2:8-9 Ephesians 2:8-9 [8] For by grace are you saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: [9] Not of works, lest any man should boast.

). But we are saved by grace through faith. The danger we face is that our faith will die if we neglect our salvation by not living a life of obedience to God (Hebrews 2:1-3 Hebrews 2:1-3 [1] Therefore we ought to give the more earnest heed to the things which we have heard, lest at any time we should let them slip. [2] For if the word spoken by angels was steadfast, and every transgression and disobedience received a just recompense of reward; [3] How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation; which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed to us by them that heard him;

The examples and testimonies of the men and women we read about in Hebrews 11 show us we can believe God (p. 19).

We should pray to God for faith, and we should pray often for it (Luke 18:1 Luke 18:1And he spoke a parable to them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint;

Living a life of prayer, Bible study and humble obedience to God clarifies and strengthens our faith (p. 28).
