6 Saving Faith

  1. 1. SAVING FAITH
  2. 2. <ul><li>WHAT IS FAITH? </li></ul><ul><li>Belief/Confidence/Certainty/Hope/ </li></ul><ul><li>Trust/Assurance in something or someone that is unseen although you live as if it were a reality. </li></ul><ul><li>When do you exercise faith? </li></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>Faith is Belief??? </li></ul><ul><li>John 3:16 &quot;For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life. </li></ul><ul><li>The Greek word for BELIEVE is “ PISTEUO ” which is defined as “more than mere intellectual acceptance, but a sincere trust and commitment to that belief as evidenced by a willingness to give one’s life to that belief.” </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>2. WHY IS FAITH IMPORTANT? </li></ul><ul><li>Hebrews 11:6 And without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who seek Him. </li></ul>
  5. 5. <ul><li>Mark 6:1-6 1 And He went out from there, and He came into His home town; and His disciples followed Him. 2 And when the Sabbath had come, He began to teach in the synagogue; and the many listeners were astonished, saying, &quot;Where did this man get these things, and what is this wisdom given to Him, and such miracles as these performed by His hands? 3 &quot;Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary, and brother of James, and Joses, and Judas, and Simon? Are not His sisters here with us?&quot; And they took offense at Him. </li></ul>
  6. 6. <ul><li>WHAT IS BIBLICAL FAITH? </li></ul><ul><li>1. Biblical faith is sincere trust and commitment. </li></ul><ul><li>Hebrews 11:6 And without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who seek Him. </li></ul><ul><li>Heb 11:1 is having full assurance, no doubts. </li></ul>
  7. 7. <ul><li>WHAT IS BIBLICAL FAITH? </li></ul><ul><li>Biblical faith has proper object- Jesus Christ. </li></ul><ul><li>John 3:16- Only Jesus promises eternal life. </li></ul><ul><li>John 5:24 – He promise eternal life to those who believe. </li></ul><ul><li>John 11:25-26 – He claimed to be the resurrection and the life. </li></ul>
  8. 8. <ul><li>John 1:12 But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name, </li></ul><ul><li>John 3:16 &quot;For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life. </li></ul>
  9. 9. <ul><li>John 5:24 &quot;Truly, truly, I say to you, he who hears My word, and believes Him who sent Me, has eternal life, and does not come into judgment, but has passed out of death into life. </li></ul><ul><li>John 11:25 Jesus said to her, &quot;I am the resurrection and the life; he who believes in Me shall live even if he dies, </li></ul><ul><li>John 12:46 &quot;I have come as light into the world, that everyone who believes in Me may not remain in darkness. </li></ul>
  10. 10. <ul><li>1 Peter 1:20-21 For He was foreknown before the foundation of the world, but has appeared in these last times for the sake of you 21 who through Him are believers in God, who raised Him from the dead and gave Him glory, so that your faith and hope are in God. </li></ul><ul><li>Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not lean on your own understanding. 6 In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He will make your paths straight. </li></ul>
  11. 11. <ul><li>FAITH IN JESUS CHRIST </li></ul>+ O = SALVATION RESULTING IN GOOD WORKS
  12. 12. <ul><li>Philippians 4:19 And my God shall supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus. </li></ul><ul><li>Hebrews 13:5 He Himself has said, &quot;I will never desert you, nor will I ever forsake you,&quot; </li></ul>
  13. 13. <ul><li>Matthew 17:20 And He said to them, &quot;Because of the littleness of your faith; for truly I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you shall say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there,' and it shall move; and nothing shall be impossible to you. </li></ul>
  14. 14. 4. WHAT IS THE MEANING OF SAVING FAITH?
  15. 15. <ul><li>Hebrews 11:7 By faith Noah, being warned by God about things not yet seen, in reverence prepared an ark for the salvation of his household, by which he condemned the world, and became an heir of the righteousness which is according to faith. </li></ul>
  16. 16. <ul><li>Genesis 6: 11-13 11 Now the earth was corrupt in the sight of God, and the earth was filled with violence. 12 And God looked on the earth, and behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted their way upon the earth. 13 Then God said to Noah, &quot;The end of all flesh has come before Me; for the earth is filled with violence because of them; and behold, I am about to destroy them with the earth. </li></ul>
  17. 17. <ul><li>Genesis 6: 14-22 14 &quot;Make for yourself an ark of gopher wood; you shall make the ark with rooms, and shall cover it inside and out with pitch. 15 &quot;And this is how you shall make it: the length of the ark three hundred cubits, its breadth fifty cubits, and its height thirty cubits. 16 &quot;You shall make a window for the ark, and finish it to a cubit from the top; and set the door of the ark in the side of it; you shall make it with lower, second, and third decks. </li></ul>
  18. 18. <ul><li>Genesis 6: 14-22 17 &quot;And behold, I, even I am bringing the flood of water upon the earth, to destroy all flesh in which is the breath of life, from under heaven; everything that is on the earth shall perish. 18 &quot;But I will establish My covenant with you; and you shall enter the ark-- you and your sons and your wife, and your sons' wives with you. 19 &quot;And of every living thing of all flesh, you shall bring two of every kind into the ark, to keep them alive with you; they shall be male and female. </li></ul>
  19. 19. <ul><li>Genesis 6: 14-22 20 &quot;Of the birds after their kind, and of the animals after their kind, of every creeping thing of the ground after its kind, two of every kind shall come to you to keep them alive. 21 &quot;And as for you, take for yourself some of all food which is edible, and gather it to yourself; and it shall be for food for you and for them.“ 22 Thus Noah did; according to all that God had commanded him, so he did. </li></ul>
  20. 20. <ul><li>Genesis 7:1-14 Then the Lord said to Noah, &quot;Enter the ark, you and all your household; for you alone I have seen to be righteous before Me in this time. 2 &quot;You shall take with you of every clean animal by sevens, a male and his female; and of the animals that are not clean two, a male and his female; 3 also of the birds of the sky, by sevens, male and female, to keep offspring alive on the face of all the earth. 4 &quot;For after seven more days, I will send rain on the earth forty days and forty nights; and I will blot out from the face of the land every living thing that I have made.&quot; </li></ul>
  21. 21. <ul><li>Genesis 7:1-14 5 And Noah did according to all that the Lord had commanded him. 6 Now Noah was six hundred years old when the flood of water came upon the earth. 7 Then Noah and his sons and his wife and his sons' wives with him entered the ark because of the water of the flood. 8 Of clean animals and animals that are not clean and birds and everything that creeps on the ground, 9 there went into the ark to Noah by twos, male and female, as God had commanded Noah. 10 And it came about after the seven days, that the water of the flood came upon the earth. </li></ul>
  22. 22. <ul><li>Genesis 7:1-14 11 In the six hundredth year of Noah's life, in the second month, on the seventeenth day of the month, on the same day all the fountains of the great deep burst open, and the floodgates of the sky were opened. 12 And the rain fell upon the earth for forty days and forty nights. 13 On the very same day Noah and Shem and Ham and Japheth, the sons of Noah, and Noah's wife and the three wives of his sons with them, entered the ark, 14 they and every beast after its kind, and all the cattle after their kind, and every creeping thing that creeps on the earth after its kind, and every bird after its kind, all sorts of birds. </li></ul>
  23. 23. <ul><li>Genesis 2: 5-6 Now no shrub of the field was yet in the earth, and no plant of the field had yet sprouted, for the Lord God had not sent rain upon the earth; and there was no man to cultivate the ground. 6 But a mist used to rise from the earth and water the whole surface of the ground. </li></ul>
  24. 24. <ul><li>Genesis 7:5 And Noah did according to all that the Lord had commanded him. </li></ul>
  25. 26. <ul><li>John 14:21 &quot;He who has My commandments and keeps them, he it is who loves Me; and he who loves Me shall be loved by My Father, and I will love him, and will disclose Myself to him.&quot; </li></ul>
  26. 27. <ul><li>Genesis 7: 11-13 11 In the six hundredth year of Noah's life, in the second month, on the seventeenth day of the month, on the same day all the fountains of the great deep burst open, and the floodgates of the sky were opened. 12 And the rain fell upon the earth for forty days and forty nights. 13 On the very same day Noah and Shem and Ham and Japheth, the sons of Noah, and Noah's wife and the three wives of his sons with them, entered the ark, </li></ul>
  27. 28. <ul><li>5. IS THERE A WAY TO STRENGTHEN OUR FAITH? </li></ul><ul><li>Romans 10:17 So faith comes from hearing, and hearing by the Word of Christ. </li></ul><ul><li>Remember faith is not a work it is a gift. </li></ul>
  28. 29. <ul><li>6. WHAT IS THE PROOF OF OUR FAITH? </li></ul><ul><li>Ephesians 2:10 </li></ul><ul><li>For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them. </li></ul><ul><li>Matthew 5:16 </li></ul><ul><li>&quot;Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven. </li></ul>
  29. 30. <ul><li>6. WHAT IS THE PROOF OF OUR FAITH? </li></ul><ul><li>Luke 6:43-44 </li></ul><ul><li>&quot;For there is no good tree which produces bad fruit; nor, on the other hand, a bad tree which produces good fruit. [44] &quot;For each tree is known by its own fruit. For men do not gather figs from thorns, nor do they pick grapes from a briar bush. </li></ul>
  30. 31. <ul><li>SUMMARIZE KEY PRINCIPLES </li></ul><ul><li>We need Faith to please God. </li></ul><ul><li>The object of Faith is God and His word. </li></ul><ul><li>The test of Faith is Obedience Evidence in Good Works. </li></ul>
  31. 32. <ul><li>APPLICATION OF KEY PRINCIPLES </li></ul><ul><li>2 Corinthians 13:5 Test yourselves to see if you are in the faith; examine yourselves! Or do you not recognize this about yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you-- unless indeed you fail the test ? </li></ul><ul><li>Matthew 7:21 &quot;Not everyone who says to Me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven; but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven. </li></ul>
  32. 33. <ul><li>Are the manifestations of Saving faith present in your life today? </li></ul><ul><li>1. Do you have a passion to please God? </li></ul><ul><li>Are you hungry for God’s Word? </li></ul><ul><li>Do you have a heartfelt desire to obey God? </li></ul><ul><li>Is God, the only object of your faith? </li></ul>
