FAITH FIGHTS...

By Wade Martin Hughes, Sr. Kyfingers@aol.com

This has to be 2 part less or condense and skip some...

1 Tim. 6:12 Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses.

I. FAITH IS AN ACTION WORD... FAITH MUST BE MORE THAN A PASSIVE-EVASIVE

PLAN...

Hebrews 11:1 (quickview)  Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

NIV

Hebrews 11:1 (quickview)  Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

LB

Hebrews 11:1 (quickview)  What is faith? It is the confident assurance that something we want is going to happen. It is the certainty that what we hope for is waiting for us, even though we cannot see it up ahead.

MS

Hebrews 11:1 (quickview)  The fundamental fact of existence is that this trust in God, this faith, is the firm foundation under everything that makes life worth living. It’s our handle on what we

can’t see.

A. FAITH:

NOW FAITH.... ?

Historical faith?

B. FIGHT:

Contend, confrontation, battle, combat, overcome strife...

Determined effort, oppose, wage, carry on, struggle, endure

C. What is not faith?

Fear, doubt, emotional games, seeking signs, doing things in the flesh...

D. A great obstacle to faith can be living always REACTING to the situations.

Those allowing the situation to dictate to our feelings and emotions.

FAITH IS MUCH MORE THAN REACTION... FAITH ACTS...

Sure many things will catch us off guard and knock us to our knees.

But these situations did not catch our God by surprise.

E. This battle, conflict, storm, trial or problem is a GREAT OPPORTUNITY.

Great test make great testimonies.

Big messes can make big messages...

II. THERE ARE THREE QUESTIONS OF CREDIBILITY WE ALWAYS ASK

REGARDING FAITH...

Matthew 11:12 (quickview)  And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force.

A. Can God do this?

B. Can God do this for me?

C. When will God do this?

D. We must address these three questions before we can ever step up to let FAITH FIGHT...

E. If we establish our God can do this for me --- now we are prepared to take our FAITH AND GO TO BATTLE...

III. FAITH IS THE KEY TO LIFE... WITHOUT FAITH, OR BY LITTLE FAITH, SPIRITUAL DEATH IS SURE... WE MUST RELEASE OUR FAITH TOWARDS GOD AND LET THE FAITH FIGHT OUR BATTLES... WHERE THERE IS LITTLE FAITH THERE IS GREAT

FEAR... WHERE THERE IS GREAT FAITH THERE IS NO FEAR...

Hebrews 11:6 (quickview)  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.

A. Fear and doubt are tattle tails...

Mark 4:40 (quickview)  And he said unto them, Why are ye so fearful? how is it that ye have no faith?

B. Faith will take the fear out of the lions den...

Faith will keep you cool as you face the fiery furnace.

Faith will bring your only son to the altar...

Faith will cause you to press through the crowd and touch the hem of His garment.

IV. FAITH WILL NOT BE LIKE WATER AND ALWAYS TAKE THE COURSE OF LEAST
