Declaring Authentic Faith…

Declaring Authentic Faith...

Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen…And without faith it is impossible to please him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him.
-Hebrews 11:1, 6 [ESV]

Authentic Faith is about assurance in what we can be certain of. We will have days of uncertainty because of the circumstances within time. This however does not need to dismantle our certainty in God. Both can coexists at the same time… we can be uncertain of the days and at the same time be certain of the Keeper & Creator of our days.

Authentic Christian Faith is believing that Jesus Christ is all that He says He is & that He will do all that He says He will do.

These following words were a part of my devotional time this morning…

Faith is not conjuring up, through an act of your will, a sense of certainty that something is going to happen. No, it is recognizing God’s promise as an actual fact, believing it is true, rejoicing in the knowledge of that truth, then simply resting because God said it…Faith does not say, “I see this is good for me; therefore God must have sent it.” Instead, faith declares, “God sent it; therefore it must be good for me.”
-L.B. Cowman,
Streams In The Desert, (May 1st)

Amen?

Declare Authentic Christian Faith…

By His Grace. Through His Gospel. For His Glory.
