Bible Study 07/13/08 - Faith Comes From God

Faith Comes From God


Today…I’m believing that God has sent us a Word…to Help Build our Faith.

How many…need there Faith…built up?

There’s a portion in each of you…called inner faith…that comes from God.

It is called… “the measure of faith”…

and every person…is given this amount according to Rom 12:3.

This measure is an amount…whereby every person is without excuse…for not believing in God.

This God-given faith…is the initial starting amount… that everyone possessed at one time.

A person can go on to develop this faith…

by studying the Bible to build his faith as promised in scripture…

or a person can throw away his initial measure of faith.

God has allowed each us…to make our own choice.

But one thing for sure…He has given us a free gift… a gift…that cost a man His life…a gift called Faith.

And because of God’s grace…and this gift of faith… we are able…to be saved.

Eph. 2:8

True faith…comes from God…and it is faith…that brought you to church today.

There was a point in God’s plan at onetime… where faith…was not originally meant for you and I.
It was meant only for the Jewish people. God’s chosen ones.

But because of the sacrifice that Jesus made for us… we were included.

I want you to know…that FAITH…is really a big deal!

Acts 14:27 (read this verse):

When this door was open…a couple of important things…initially came through that door.

Repeat after me…

#1 - The Gospel News of Jesus…..and…

#2 - by hearing…and believing…I’m able to receive
the promise.

Why do we need to hear the Word of God?
We need to hear…how others were tested by faith…

and overcame there issues…trails…obstacles… barriers…and mountains.

Read heroes of faith - book of Hebrews Chpt. 11:

We are like a book…and our life is being written.

There’s chapters of stuff…that we have gone through and will go through…

that’s being produced and has an author.

And that author…has a great audience…that’s taking note.

Heb. 12:1-2 (read this passage)
