Faith Is Essential In The Christian Life

My Dad was a science teacher. Science is based on proof that something exists. But Christianity is different. Christianity is all about faith and, that can be a problem for someone who doesn’t believe anything exists that can’t be proven.
Lots of people have heard the gospel but will not believe in Jesus because they can’t prove that Jesus exists. Which is why Christianity is about faith.
We learn about a man named Jesus by reading the bible. But, how do we know that the Bible is true? We accept it by faith. And, as we exercise faith, God grows us and matures our faith.
Hebrews 11:1 says, “Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.” Think about that verse… “faith is the ASSURANCE of things hoped for..” That means that we are confidence.. we are sure.. that the promises of Christianity are true.
What are those promises? One is that Jesus is real… even though we have never seen Jesus, we believe Jesus is a real historical person.
The Bible says if a person will repent of their sins and believe in Jesus, they will be saved. Millions of people have done that… when we did, we didn’t see Jesus come into our lives but we felt it. We believe that Jesus is real.
We believe that Jesus died and is returning.
We believe that Jesus will provide for our NEEDS. The apostle Paul said, “My God shall supply all your needs according to His riches in glory” (Phil. 4:19). Hebrews 11:6 says, “And without faith it is impossible to please Him…” Today, if you are struggling with faith… if your faith is weak… ask the Lord to strengthen you faith and He will.
