Faith is believing in what we cannot see yet we hope for the evidence of it. Without faith it is impossible to please God, but with faith it does many things, like put God into our life and amazing miracles begin to happen. We have heard of the fruits of the Spirit which faith is named, and although we stand by faith as believers, the world will try to make us believe there is a law against serving Christ and His ways, but scripture tells us there is no law against the faith we have in Him! (Galatians 5:22-26) But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts. If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another….(Hebrews 11:1,6)
The atheist has no place in their life for God as they go through life without Him, yet their life shows this great void as not all men have faith. Long before Jesus even spoke the words, O faithless and perverse generation, we learn in the Song of Moses that there were in his days as well, children in whom was no faith. (Deuteronomy 32:18-20) Of the Rock that begat thee thou art unmindful, and hast forgotten God that formed thee. And when the Lord saw it, he abhorred them, because of the provoking of his sons, and of his daughters. And he said, I will hide my face from them, I will see what their end shall be: for they are a very froward generation, children in whom is no faith…..(Matthew 17:14-21)….(2Thessalonians 3:1-3).
Abraham shows true faith by believing the impossible, for when he was a hundred years old he gave God the glory when Sarah became pregnant at the age of ninety. (Romans 4:16-22) Therefore it is of faith, that it might be by grace; to the end the promise might be sure to all the seed; not to that only 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,) before him whom he believed, even God, who quickeneth the dead, and calleth those things which be not as though they were. 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.And being not weak 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 staggered not at 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 imputed to him for righteousness…..( Hebrews 11:11)
