Today Reminder – 03 October 2014 (Day 3 – Faith)

A reminder for today

What is faith? Faith is described as complete trust or confidence in someone or something. The writer of Hebrews defines faith so nicely in Hebrews 11 verse 1:

Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see. 

If we want to better our lives, our model for living faith should be Jesus Christ. His life is the perfect model of faith. Throughout His human years Jesus displayed perfect, living faith and motivated others not only to believe in God, but to go beyond that by believing what God says —trusting Him, even to the point of doing as He says.

To believe God, on the other hand, is to have faith that God can and will do for us whatever He has promised to do. The Bible tells us that the ancient patriarch Abraham "believed God" and explains that "he did not waver at the promise of God through unbelief, but was strengthened in faith, giving glory to God, and being fully convinced that what He had promised He was also able to [and would] perform" (Romans:4:3, 20-21).

God expects us to act on this trusting belief. He requires that we have living faith in His existence, power and promises.

Have an awesome day dear friend of Jesus
