02 Faith Sef Eng Presentation Transcript

  • 1. FAITH Lesson 2
  • 2. “ Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see ” (New International Version) Hebrews 11:1 “ Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen ” (King James Version) WHAT IS FAITH?
  • 3. FAITH: THE DIVINE’S SHARE He gives us His Word so that we retain and strengthen our faith. God gives us faith to be pleasing to Him and receive salvation.
  • 4. THE GIFT OF GOD “ For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: [it is] the gift of God ” Ephesians, 2: 8 FAITH: THE DIVINE’S SHARE
  • 5. “ But without faith [it is] impossible to please [him]: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and [that] he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him ” Hebrews, 11: 6 MANDATORY TO PLEASE HIM FAITH: THE DIVINE’S SHARE
  • 6. “ Seeing [it is] one God, which shall justify the circumcision by faith, and uncircumcision through faith ” Romans, 3: 30 MANDATORY FOR SALVATION FAITH: THE DIVINE’S SHARE
  • 7. “ So then faith [cometh] by hearing, and hearing by the word of God ” Romans, 10: 17 HIS WORD ENTRENCHED US IN FAITH FAITH: THE DIVINE’S SHARE
  • 8. FAITH: THE HUMAN’S SHARE First, we must accept the gift of faith that God gives us, which can be secured by miracles in our lives (Habakkuk 2: 4). This faith leads us to make it consistent with works (James 2: 17). EXERCISING FAITH 1
  • 9. FAITH: THE HUMAN’S SHARE Faith is more than a feeling. The genuine faith grow in spite of doubts or difficulties (Luke 17: 5-6). We grow in faith when we interact daily with Jesus, trusting in his promises (Galatians 2: 20). Throughout our lives the faith grows as a "shield" that protects us from the "wiles of the devil" (Ephesians 6: 16). GROWING IN FAITH 2
  • 10. FAITH: THE HUMAN’S SHARE “ Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked ” Ephesians, 6: 16
  • 11. FAITH IN A PERSON: JESUS Jesus Christ is the ROCK on which we anchor our faith strong. Faith, apart from being based on sound doctrine, is trust in the person who spoke these doctrines.
  • 12. “ It is not enough to believe about Christ; we must believe in Him. The only faith that will benefit us is that which embraces Him as a personal Saviour; which appropriates His merits to ourselves. Many hold faith as an opinion. Saving faith is a transaction by which those who receive Christ join themselves in covenant relation with God. Genuine faith is life. A living faith means an increase of vigor, a confiding trust, by which the soul becomes a conquering power ” E.G.W. ( The Desire of Ages, p. 347 )
