Topic: Why The Christian Life Is Impossible Without Faith [3rd September 2018 Daily Devotional]
Scripture: 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. Hebrews 11:6
Thought For The Day: Without faith, disastrous falls are imminent or inescapable.
Previously, we saw that faith is a non-negotiable necessity for the Christian’s life and adventure on the face of the earth. This means, the Christian life is impossible without faith. When faith is out of place, Christianity is out of place, but when faith is intact, Christianity is intact.
Now, let me give you reasons why the Christian life or Christianity is impossible without faith:
a) We are saved by faith
We are saved by grace through faith (Ephesians 2:8). Thus, without faith, salvation cannot be realized.
b) We are made whole by faith
We are healed, cleansed and made whole by faith (Matthew 9:22). So without faith, we remain unclean and prone to diverse satanic afflictions.
c) We live by faith
This means, without faith, death is inevitable for the just (Galatians 3:11).
d) We stand by faith
Faith is our stand in life and destiny; faith gives us a stand in life (Romans 11:20, 2 Corinthians 1:24). Without faith, disastrous falls are imminent or inescapable.
Now, if we are saved by faith, made whole by faith, live by faith, stand by faith, walk by faith, what can we do without faith? Nothing! Absolutely nothing!
My counsel is, make up your mind to cultivate a solid life of faith in God in order to have and maintain a solid Christian life.
Remember this: Without faith, disastrous falls are imminent or inescapable.
1. Make up your mind to deal with every form of doubt and unbelief in your life.
2. Determine to cultivate a solid life of faith.
Prayer: O Lord! I ask for the impartation of the spirit of faith (2 Corinthians 4:13). Help me Lord, to put absolute trust in You and in Your Word, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
