Summary: What elements are necessary for a Biblical Faith?

  Study Tools

Biblical faith involves 3 things: our minds, our emotions, and our wills

I. Our Minds

A. Biblical faith is first of all belief based on evidence

1. Christianity is firmly set in history

2. A reasonable and honest inquiry with our

minds leads us to believe that the Bible is

too accurate to be a man-made book.

3. Jesus Christ did something beyond what

any ordinary religious founder might have

done to impact history in such a way.

B. All through the Bible we are encouraged to use our

minds

1. “Come now, and let us reason together,

says the LORD: though your sins are like

scarlet, they shall be as white as snow;

though they are red like crimson, they shall

be like wool.” Isaiah 1:18 (NIV)

2. Our mind then brings us in the direction of God.

Biblical faith is first of all belief based on

evidence.

II. Our Emotions

A. The evidence of the mind moves to the depths of the heart

1. Emotionally we have to do something with the

evidence we see

2. Demons believe all the evidence; it is not enough

B. It is personal trust placed in the object of that evidence (Jesus

Christ)

1. We must respond to the evidence with obedience

2. God “now commands all people everywhere to

repent” Acts 17:30 (NIV)

The evidence of the mind moves to the

depths of the heart.

III. Our Wills

A. The evidence of the mind which affects the belief of the heart

results in a response of the will

1. True faith always results in action

2. Can you show true faith without action? (vs. 18b)

B. Our lives will be changed

1. Our will is to know Jesus and be like Him

2. That only comes through a trust relationship with Him

The evidence of the mind which affects the belief

of the heart results in a response of the will.
