THE POWER OF FAITH IN GOD

THE POWER OF FAITH IN GOD STUDY ON THE POWER OF FAITH IN GOD IMPORTANCE WITH THE POWER OF FAITH IN GOD MESSAGE

 

          Welcome back once again to Daily Bread. Our study of Paulís letter to the Romans continues as he explains some things that are very important about Faith, but first letís talk about a couple of things that keep people from taking the path of Faith into Christianity.

          Do you know anyone who thinks itís just too hard to be a Christian because there are too many rules? Well, nothing could be further from the TRUTH, as you found out in the last chapter that having Faith frees you from law. That's not to say that we shouldn't all be law abiding citizens, but rather, being lawful is in our hearts because the Lord puts it there and we become renewed in spirit and desire to please our Father by being righteous.

          Itís very simple. God doesnít want us to turn somersaults to become a Christian. He doesnít want us to work hard or meet a quota or anything like that in order to win His Love. All we have to do is believe that Jesus, His Son, paid the price for our sins on the cross and that God raised Him from the dead. Other than that, He just wants us to tell others this great news, which is called the Gospel.

          Do you know someone who seems to think that the things theyíve done in the past are too awful to ever make up for? They feel like theyíd have to do sooooo much in order to ever be found worthy, that theyíve given up hope and surrendered to the enemy. That doesnít mean that they go around murdering or stealing or lying. They can go through life being quite good people, but their lack of Faith, is just enough for them to be satanís tool. See, they influence others into thinking that they can get through life without the Lord just fine, but I ask you this ... What happens after that?

          Oh, yeah, and thereís another little thing that keeps so many away too, itís called righteousness. Righteousness can be inconvenient to people sometimes. It gets in the way of their ďfunĒ so thatís enough to convince them that being a Christian isnít the path for them. If itís fun theyíre looking for, the end of the path theyíre on, is anything but fun.

          What do these three things have in common? They all require works, which is exactly what Paul is trying to tell us that we donít need in order to be saved. Just Faith. Letís read more of what Paul has to say about Faith and works. He uses Abraham as an example for us to show how faith is what really counts.
 

What can we say that Abraham learned, concerning works?
Because if Abraham was justified by works,
he has something to be proud of,
but not in the presence of God.
But, what does the scripture say?
Abraham
believed God,
and it was counted unto him for righteousness (Genesis 15:6).

THE POWER OF FAITH IN GOD LESSON WITH THE POWER OF FAITH IN GOD EXPLANATION

Sorry to interrupt, but, you see, it doesnít say that Abraham was a good boy scout, so God chose him. It says that because Abraham had strong faith in God, thatís why God chose him.


Now to the person that does works,
his reward is not considered to be of Grace, but of debt.
But to the person that doesnít do works,
but believes in Him that justifies the ungodly,
his Faith is counted for righteousness.
 

          Look at it this way. Letís say you get a special loved one a gift. Now if they pay you for that gift, it becomes - no longer a gift, and in fact, youíd be quite offended by the implication that you wanted or needed to be paid back. God doesnít want your ďpaymentĒ for His Grace in the form of works either. That doesnít mean He doesnít want you to do good works. He just doesnít want you to think of them in any way as a payment for His Grace or that you do them so you wonít be obligated in any way, and thatís certainly not what Grace is all about. Grace is free of debt. Can you see how hurtful it could be to Him? He just wants your Faith and love. By the way, what we owe Him, we can never pay back. We owe Him everything.

Even as David also describes the blessedness
of the man of whom God counts righteousness without works, saying,
Blessed are they whose iniquities are forgiven, and whose sins are covered.
Blessed is the man to whom the Lord will not impute sin (Psalms 32:1,2).
Is this blessedness granted to the Jewish only, or upon the Gentiles also?
For we say that Faith was counted as righteousness for Abraham.
How was it counted then? When he was in circumcision, or in uncircumcision?
Not in circumcision, but in uncircumcision.
And he received the sign of circumcision, a seal of the righteousness of the Faith which he had,
before he was circumcised, that he might be the father of all them that believe,
though they be Gentiles, that righteousness might be counted to them also,
and the father of circumcision to them who are not of the circumcision only,
but who also walk in the steps of that Faith of our father Abraham,
which he had before he was circumcised.
The promise, that he should be the heir of the world,
was not to Abraham, or to his seed, through the law,
but through the righteousness of Faith.
Because if they which are of the law were made the heirs,
Faith is made void, and the promise is made of none effect,
because the law works wrath, because where no law is, there is no sin.
So, it is of Faith, that it might be by Grace,
to the end (concluding that) the promise might be guaranteed to all the seed,
not to only that which is of the law,
but to that also which is of the Faith of Abraham, who is the father of us all,
(As it is written, I have made thee a father of many nations, Genesis 17:5)
before Him whom he believed, even God, who gives back life to the dead,
and calls those things which be not as though they were
(and makes things happen that seem impossible).
Who against hope believed in hope, that he might become the father of many nations,
according to that which was spoken, So shall thy seed be (Genesis 15:5).
And being strong in Faith, he considered not his own body now dead,
when he was about an hundred years old, neither yet the deadness of Sarah's womb, he didnít
doubt the promise of God through unbelief, but was strong in Faith, giving glory to God,
and being fully persuaded that, what He had promised, He was able also to perform.
And therefore it was counted to him for righteousness.
Now it wasnít written for his sake alone, that it was counted to him,
but for us also, to whom it shall be counted,
if we believe in Him that raised up Jesus our Lord from the dead,
who was delivered for our offences, and was raised again for our justification.

THE POWER OF FAITH IN GOD INFORMATION WITH THE POWER OF FAITH IN GOD MEANING

           Because of his Faith, Abraham is the father of the faithful, no matter what nationality. And the promise of eternal life and Godís Grace is given to all of us who are faithful children.

          Thereís another thing that I want to point out to you, because thereís a monster out there called doubt that can sneak in and play terrible tricks on your Faith, and that can put distance between you and God that you really donít want to happen. If you look back several lines, youíll see where Paul says that God calls those things which be not as though they were, which means that God makes things happen that seem impossible. It was 25 years after God made His promise to Abraham, that Isaac was born. We have to be strong in Faith like Abraham. That means being patient, and not giving up hope. When something seems hopeless, you have to remember Abraham, and how his Faith was counted for righteousness. We have to leave things in Godís hands, because we canít make the impossible happen without Faith. Be patient. Trust in God, and watch the miracles begin to unfold in your life.

          Join us again real soon as we continue with Paulís letter to the Romans, right here at Daily Bread.
