Christian faith and the word of God

  1. 1. Christian Faithand the Word Of God<br />
  2. 2. Do you believe in God?<br />YES! Would be the answer a majority of us would give…<br />
  3. 3. Most of us would say “Yes we do” because most of us inherit a religion from birth and we have been educated by our parents, school , friends and society that there is a God<br />
  4. 4. The good thing is that in almost every religion there is reference to God (as we refer in English language) always as a divine presence… <br />
  5. 5. At the core of every Religion it is always seeking man to do good…Yes in every religion.<br />
  6. 6. Mans own interpretations may have changed the intended message some what… but always at the core of any religion it is always Good.<br />
  7. 7. We are Christians…Christ followers…We believe in Jesus AS OUR Savior<br />
  8. 8. As Christians we believe that Jesus is the Son of God<br />
  9. 9. In John chapter 3 it is said16&quot;For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life”.<br />
  10. 10. From all of the humanity we Christians are especially blessed by God to have been given Jesus… the son of God…who carried a special message for us from God!<br />
  11. 11. As followers of Jesus Christ as we should diligently seek Him…His teachings…the beautiful example of HIS life…<br />
  12. 12. Why was He here?...What was His message?<br />
  13. 13. Jesus brought us the Gospel of Gods Kingdom…in other words “the road to achieve God’s kingdom” <br />
  14. 14. Matthew 4:23 tells us that &quot;Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, [and] preaching the gospel of the kingdom . . .”<br />
  15. 15. Several chapters later Matthew adds, &quot;Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, [and] preaching the gospel of the kingdom . . .&quot; (Matthew 9:35).<br />
  16. 16. Luke 4:43 records Jesus saying, &quot;I must preach the Kingdom of God to the other cities also, because for this purpose I have been sent.&quot;<br />
  17. 17. Mathew 1 – 22 22 All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had said through the prophet: 23&quot;The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel&quot;—which means, &quot;God with us.&quot; <br />
  18. 18. Centuries before Jesus&apos; birth the prophet Isaiah wrote of the coming Messiah and His Kingdom: (Isaiah 9:6-7). &quot;For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given; and the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the increase of His government and peace there will be no end, upon the throne of David and over His kingdom, to order it and establish it with judgment and justice from that time forward, even forever . . .&quot; <br />
  19. 19. Not only did Jesus come to give us the Gospel of Gods Kingdom, He died on the Cross to save all of humanity from further bondage with forces of negativity… we call Satan (among other words in English language) ……To give us a fresh start!<br />
  20. 20. By accepting Jesus as our savior and through repentance we can get redemption for our Sins…Jesus also brought to us the pathway to reach Gods Kingdom.This message is found in the New Testament <br />
  21. 21. But how many of us Christians have read and steadfastly follow the path that Jesus showed us…Have you at least read through the Four Gospels?<br />
  22. 22. Although we would like to believe that the majority of us as ‘being true followers’… it is not so…those who follow Jesus‘s gospel are only a fraction…Our degree of faithful compliance to the stated truth in his gospel will vary from 0 to 99% <br />
  23. 23. Look at these statistics…In a recent study carried out states:The percentage of Christians who have read through the FOUR GOSPELS AT LEAST ONCE – 6%NOT READ – 94%<br />
  24. 24. In John 14 verse 6 6Jesus answered, &quot;I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. 7If you really knew me, you would know[b] my Father as well. From now on, you do know him and have seen him.&quot; <br />
  25. 25. If we don’t read the message brought by Jesus…how will one know the way to Gods Kingdom?<br />
  26. 26. Most of us Christians fail to read understand and make it the way of life for us to reach Gods Kingdom.<br />
  27. 27. As a normal trait of human nature most of us would conveniently not have the time to read His gospel…The few of us who read it don’t faithfully comply to what Jesus has shown us through God word.<br />
  28. 28. For example in Mark 11 verse 22 itsays&quot;Have faith in God,&quot; Jesus answered. 23&quot;I tell you the truth, if anyone says to this mountain, &apos;Go, throw yourself into the sea,&apos; and does not doubt in his heart but believes that what he says will happen, it will be done for him”.<br />
  29. 29. How many of us believe that this can be done?. Due to our human nature we assume that moving a mountain is impossible. Because we have mentally set human limitations on our selves. But in Gods word He has given us an insight to what is possible through faith.<br />
  30. 30. Mark 11 - 23&quot;I tell you the truth, if anyone says to this mountain, &apos;Go, throw yourself into the sea,&apos; and does not doubt in his heart but believes that what he says will happen, it will be done for him”.BUT how many of us will do this a. Without any DOUBTb. And in absolute FAITH<br />
  31. 31. BUT how many Christians of can do this a. Without any DOUBTb. And in absolute FAITH<br />
  32. 32. I&apos;m sure the majority would say it was impossible. Simply because as humans we set our limitations and fail to comprehend Gods awesome power…although Jesus himself has taken this extreme example and told us that even such an extreme task was possible if you have faith! <br />
  33. 33. Are we humanly capable of deriving that much Faith? YES WE CAN…The power of Faith can be found all over the Gospels.<br />
  34. 34. We only have to Read…Meditate and Abide by Gods word.<br />
