THE ABC’S OF FAITH - JOHN TEEM JR.

HEBREWS 11:1-8 - APRIL 25, 2010

THE BIBLE HAS MUCH TO SAY ABOUT FAITH AND WE ALL KNOW THAT FAITH IS AN IMPORTANT ATTRIBUTE FOR CHRISTIANS TO POSSESS.

BUT WHEN WE REALLY SEARCH OURSELVES

ESPECIALLY WHEN SURROUNDED BY TROUBLE OR DOUBT

DO WE STILL HAVE FAITH? DOUBT IS THE OPPOSITE OF FAITH.

DO WE TRULY KNOW WHAT FAITH IS OR WHAT IT IS ALL ABOUT?

TODAY WE WILL LOOK AT THE BEGINNING OF THE FAITH CHAPTER WHICH IS HEBREWS 11

AND THEN I WANT TO SHARE WITH YOU WHAT I BELIEVE TO BE THE ABC’S OF FAITH.

LET US LOOK AT HEBREWS 11:1-8

A - BY FAITH WE ACCEPT AND ARE ACCEPTED

WE ACCEPT THE GIFT OF SALVATION JOHN 3:16-18

WE ACCEPT CHRIST AS LORD OF OUR LIVES EXODUS 20:2-3

WE ARE ACCEPTED/ADOPTED AS CHILDREN OF GOD ROMANS 8:14-15

B - BY FAITH WE BELIEVE

WE BELIEVE ALL OF THE PROMISES OF GOD NUMBERS 23:19

C– BY FAITH WE CONFESS

WE CONFESS CHRIST AS LORD OF OUR LIVES ROMANS 10:9

WE CONFESS OUR FAITH BY OUR ACTIONS JOHN 13:35

FAITH W/O WORKS IS DEAD JAMES 2:17

D – BY FAITH WE ARE DELIVERED HEBREW 11:7

E – BY FAITH WE WILL INHERIT EVERLASTING LIFE JOHN 3:16

F – BY FAITH WE FINISH THE RACE II TIMOTHY 4:7

G –BY FAITH WE FIND GRACE EPHESIANS 2:8

H –OUR FAITH GIVES US HOPE

HOPE ON EARTH JEREMIAH 29:11

THE HOPE OF HEAVEN TITUS 1:2

I – BY FAITH WE RECEIVE OUR INHERITANCE ROMANS 8:16-17

J – OUR FAITH IS IN JESUS MARK 9:23-24

K – BY FAITH WE ARE KEPT I PETER 1:3-5

L – OUR FAITH PRODUCES LOVE GALATIONS 5:22

M – BY FAITH WE CAN MOVE MOUNTAINS MATTHEW 17:20

N – BY FAITH OUR NEEDS ARE PROVIDED

SICKNESS JAMES 5:15

O – OUR FAITH NEVER GROWS OLD GALATIONS 6:9-10

P – BY FAITH WE PLEASE GOD AND RECEIVE THE PROMISE HEBREWS 11:6

Q – OUR FAITH WILL BE QUESTIONED

HOW CAN YOU BELIEVE IN A GOD WHO ALLOWS SO MUCH TRAGEDY

LIKE ABRAHAM WITH ISAAC AND JOB WITH HIS CHILDREN

R – BY FAITH WE WILL BE READY MATTHEW 24:44-46

LIKE THE PARABLE OF THE TEN VIRGINS 5 WERE READY AND 5 WERE NOT

S – THROUGH FAITH WE ARE SAVED EPHESIANS 2:8

T – OUR FAITH WILL BE TESTED

JAMES 1:2-3

U – BY FAITH WE ARE USED BY GOD

HEBREWS 12:1 CLOUD OF WITNESSES

V – BY FAITH WE HAVE VICTORY

EPHESIANS 6

W – BY FAITH WE BECOME WARRIORS

LOOK AT DAVID AND GOLIATH – SHEPHERD BOY WITH FAITH DEFEATED GIANT BECAME A WARRIOR KING WHO TOLD GOD “YOU HAVE TRAINED MY HANDS TO WAR AND MY FINGERS FOR BATTLE.” PSALM 144:1

PAUL TOLD TIMOTHY I HAVE FOUGHT A GOOD FIGHT

TOLD TIMOTHY TO BE A GOOD SOLDIER OF CHRIST

X – LET OUR FAITH BE X-TREME AND NEVER BE X-TINQUISHED

Y – WE MUST HAVE THE FAITH OF A YOUNG CHILD

JESUS TELLS US TO HAVE THE FAITH OF A CHILD

Z – OUR FAITH IS FROM ZENITH (ABOVE THE HEAVENS)

(The upper region of the sky. That point in the visible celestial hemisphere which is vertical to the spectator; the point of the heavens directly overhead)

CONCLUSION:

SO NOW THAT WE HAVE SEEN WHAT THE BIBLE HAS TO SAY ABOUT FAITH AND WHAT IT ACCOMPLISHES

CAN WE SAY WITHIN OURSELVES WITH ALL HONESTY THAT WE ARE LIVING BY FAITH AND PLEASING THE LORD?

WE MUST LEARN TO GROW IN OUR FAITH AND LET OUR FAITH IN GOD BE A TESTIMONY TO OTHERS WHILE ALSO BEING STRENGTHENED BY THE TESTIMONY OF THE FAITH IN OTHERS.

SINCE WE ARE SURROUNDED BY SO GREAT A CLOUD OF WITNESSES HERE IN HEBREWS 11 LET THIS ENCOURAGE US TO LIVE BY FAITH AND PUT OUR TRUST IN THE LORD ABOVE.
