[pullquote style=”right”]Without faith it is impossible to please God. [/pullquote]So, why do we need faith?
Faith in God is what saves us from eternal death. Faith protects us during spiritual warfare. The Bible described faith as a Shield. Using the analogy of military armor, faith requires the user to take up and hold faith to be protected from the fiery darts cast towards us from the evil one. Faith is intentional. It is something that we must exercise. Faith in God is the most important act we can exercise outward towards our Heavenly Father. Without faith it is impossible to please God. Without faith we will be devastated by the enemy. Without faith we will not be saved. Without faith we won’t go to heaven. Without faith we are not a follower of Christ. We need faith in order to have a life with God.
How can we come to God in faith?
God has made a way to come to him through Jesus Christ. Romans 10:17 says “So faith comes from hearing, and hearing by the word of Christ.” That means when we hear the good news about Jesus Christ, we have an opportunity to respond. If we respond in faith, believing that Christ died for you and me and surrender our lives to Him ,we have a relationship with God for eternity and he will never leave us or forget about us. John 3:16 says “God loves us so much that he gave his only Son (Jesus) that whoever believes in him will not die, but have everlasting life”. God loves us and wants to have a relationship with us. In the book of Romans, Paul says, “God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” With faith, we receive God’s precious FREE gift of salvation through Jesus Christ. There is nothing we can do to make ourselves right before God but he still loves us and wants us to put our faith & trust in nothing but Him.
The bible says that if we seek after God with all of your heart and soul we will find him. Seek God and ask him to help you have faith in Him. Faith in God can make you a whole person. Faith in God can help fill that empty void in your life. Come to God in faith today and begin to live.
