Much, much more on faith. Place of faith in the Christian life.

Let's learn today what place faith has in our lives.

Romans 1:17  "For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, 'The just shall live by faith."  So we walk by faith.

Matthew 21:22  "And whatever things you ask in prayer, believing, you will receive."  We must believe.

Ephesians 6:16  "Above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one."  It's the shield of faith with which we can quench all the fiery darts of satan.  I love that.

1 Timothy 6:12  "Fight the good fight of faith lay hold on eternal life, to which you were also called and have confessed the good confession in the presence of many witnesses"

So let's review a bit.  We live by faith and walk by faith in God.  The righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith as we grow in faith.  We need to take the shield of faith to quench satan's attacks.  It is not easy to give up our worldly ways and things, that's why it says to fight the good fight of faith.  It takes perseverance to lay hold on eternal life to which God has called us and we need to confess our faith or belief to others to help them be saved eternally too.  We don't want to be selfish with what we know.  Again tomorrow some more on faith.  Grandma Joan
