The bible study tools defined faith like : belief , trust and loyalty to a person or thing.
Who we are trusting to? What we are leaning on to? The world and desire passed away but who does the will of God will live forever. What is faith for you? We , as Christians , living in this world do we have faith(enough) in our life , Faith enough?
When Peter ( a disciple of Christ) Saw the big wave coming toward him. He scared that I am going to drawn into water . because he suddenly changed his sight to wave . He suddenly changed his focus to another thing . And when he changed his sight , his mind also change toward that thing. Oh I am going to die here! Jesus’ hand grabbed him and said : ‘ Oh you little Faith ‘ .
Faith is believing to thing you can not see. Faith is having hope and trust completely to a person is higher than you. children trust their father , when threw them into air and catch them again. They trust them without knowing why? their father have life experience and he is strong. How much your heavenly father who created you and me have so much power to catch all of us.
Faith comes with action. Faith without action is dead. Faith and deeds works together. It will be complete by action like the body without spirit is dead.
It was that Faith that Christ complete it on the cross. He had complete Faith(trust and believe to his father) to obey his father will. He went on the Christ to show us how much he loves us. He wants us to have faith in him completely .
Faith, no require understand for the start but eventually you will see it that is will of God for you. Faith takes you to unbelievable things.
Oh Father we pray in this holy night , please give us same faith that circled in you at the time of when you have been on the earth:
Jesus Prays in Gethsemane.
The night Jesus going to be betrayed by Judas. Special night for Jesus, He is in trouble . But he is awake all night to pray faithfully.
He knows his Father is faithful. He knows his heart all is His.
“See, the hour is at hand, and the Son of Man is betrayed into the hands of sinners. “
Faith took Jesus in another place. Now his Faith comes with action. Now he is fulfilling father’s plan.
“Friend, do what you came to do” Jesus said.
Then, They seized Him.
“the Scriptures of the prophets might be fulfilled ” Jesus Said
“Then all the disciples left him and fled.”
Faith took place. All gone.
Oh Jesus , Thank you that you have been faithful till you died on the cross. Jesus thank you.
