THE IMPORTANCE OF FAITH FOR EVERYDAY LIFE

******************************************

1. FAITH TO BE STRONG

Hebrews 10: 35-38 Romans 4 :18-21 Isaiah 50: 7-10

Daniel 11 :32

Faith gives us strength in difficult times . When we lose our faith and hope we become weak and unable to face the storms of life . Abraham was not weak in faith but instead he was strong in faith giving glory to God in absolute confidence that God as able to fulfill his promise even in a humanly impossible situation. Faith in God helps us to face our adversaries with boldness.

2.FAITH TO PRAY

Mark 11 : 24 Hebrews 11 :6

Faith helps us to get answers to prayer. When we pray in faith expecting an answer from God , the Lord honours our faith and grants our petitions. Praying with doubt and unbelief is a hindrance to getting answers to our prayers. We must come to God beleiving that He exists and that He rewards those who diligently seek Him.

3.FAITH TO FORGIVE

Mark 11 : 25-26 Romans 12 : 19-21 I Peter 2 :21-23

Faith helps us to forgive those who have harmed us . Because we beleive that God is a righteous Judge we commit all our pain and sufferring to Him . He has said " Vengeance is mine , I will repay " . Therefore trusting in His justice we forgive our enemies and do good to those who have harmed us.

4.FAITH TO LOVE

Matthew 5 : 44-48 Romans 8 : 35-39

The world loves those who love them and hates those who hate them . But our faith in God make us to behave differently and show the qualities of our Heavenly Father .

5.FAITH TO SUFFER

Matthew 5 :10-12 Hebrews 12 :2 Romans 8 : 18

Faith helps us endure suffering . When we beleive that a great reward is waiting for us for all the suffering we face for the sake of Christ , we do not get discouraged easily . Jesus endured the

cross because he focussed on the joy that was set before Him . He did not dwell on the humiliation and the shame that He was facing . We must meditate on the eternal reward and glory that is waiting for us . This

faith will help us to face suffering .

6. FAITH TO OBEY

Hebrews 11 :7 Hebrews 11 : 17-19

Faith helps us to obey God. Faith helped Noah to obey God and build an ark even when there was no outward sign of rain. Faith helped Abraham to obey God to sacrifice his son Isaac because he beleived that God could still fulfill His promise by raising Isaac from the dead. Faith helps us to overcome our doubt and reluctance and obey God implicitly.

7.FAITH TO PRAISE

Acts 16 :23 -26 Acts 5 : 40-41 Hebrews 11 :1
