Why Have Faith in God?


 

Faith in God is having the kind of trust and confidence in God and in Christ that leads you to commit your whole soul to Him as Saviour. Living faith always has corresponding actions. We talk what we really believe, and we act according to what we really believe.  For example: Faith is like a check. All you have to do is hold on to the check, go to the bank to present it and you can confidently expect the money to appear in your account after a certain time. If you throw the check away the money will not be put in your account. God is trustworthy and always has resources to back his promises.

Faith is a spiritual force. Faith in God is a response to God’s Word which moves God to act. Jesus said in Mark 11:23, “Truly I say to you, Whoever says to this mountain, Be taken up and be put into the sea; and has no doubt in his heart, but has faith that what he says will come about, he will have his desire.”

THE BLESSEDNESS OF GOD’S LOVE


Don’t let your worries get the best of you; remember, Moses started out as a basket case.

Some people are kind, polite, and sweet-spirited until you try to sit in their pews.

Many folks want to serve God, but only as advisors.

It is easier to preach ten sermons than it is to live one.

The good Lord didn’t create anything without a purpose, but mosquitoes come close.

When you get to your wit’s end, you’ll find God lives there.

People are funny; they want the front of the bus, the middle of the
road, and the back of the church.

Opportunity may knock once, but temptation bangs on your front door
forever.

Quit griping about your church; if it was perfect, you couldn’t belong.

If the church wants a better pastor, it only needs to pray for the
one it has.

God Himself does not propose to judge a man until he is dead. So
why should you?

Some minds are like concrete thoroughly mixed up and permanently set.

Peace starts with a smile

I don’t know why some people change churches; what difference does
it make which one you stay home from?!

A lot of church members who are singing “Standing on the Promises” are just sitting on the premises.

 We were called to be witnesses, not lawyers or judges.

Be ye fishers of men. You catch them – He’ll clean them.

Coincidence is when God chooses to remain anonymous.

Don’t put a question mark where God put a period.
Get on with your life. The best is yet to come.

Don’t wait for 6 strong men to take you to church.

Forbidden fruits create many jams.

God doesn’t call the qualified, He qualifies the called.

God grades on the cross, not the curve.

God loves everyone, but probably prefers “fruits of the spirit” over “religious nuts!”

God promises a safe landing, not a calm passage

He who angers you, controls you!

If God is your Co-pilot – swap seats!

Prayer: Don’t give God instructions — just report for duty!

The task ahead of us is never as great as the Power behind us.

The Will of God never takes you to where the Grace of God will not protect you.

We don’t change the message, the message changes us.

You can tell how big! a person is by what it takes to……….discourage him.

The best mathematical equation I have ever seen:
1 cross + 3 nails= 4 given.

For in him (Christ) were created all things …………….; all
things were created through him and for him.
He is before all things, and in him all things hold together.
Colossians 1: 15 – 17
