Faith in Action
What is faith?
What does it mean to have faith?
Hebrews 11:6 – “Without faith it is impossible to please God.”
Faith is much more than ___________________!
Every aspect of our lives is empowered by an exercise of faith:
We are _________ by faith. (Ephesians 2:8-9)
We _________ by faith. (Galatians 2:20)
We _________ by faith. (2 Corinthians 5:7)
We _________ by faith. (1 Corinthians 16:13)
We _________ obstacles by faith. (Matthew 17:20)
We _________against spiritual darkness by faith. (Timothy 6:12)
We _________ victory by faith. (1 John 5:4)
Word and Deed
1. Confidence in what we hope for!
Romans 10:17 – “Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God.”
2. The assurance of what we do not see!
Philippians 4:6 – “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanks giving, present your requests to God.”
3. This is what the ancients are commended for!
Hebrews 11:39-40 – “These were all commended for their faith, yet none of them received what had been promised. God had planned something better for us so that only together with us would they be made perfect.”
