10 Jul FAITH
Here’s an opening question for you all:
The Bible has a lot to say about Faith. Did you know that there are 229 verses with the word FAITH in them? I guess it’s an important subject to God so it must be important to us. In fact did you know it’s impossible to please God without FAITH?
Let’s take a closer look then.
I think simply put FAITH is basically trusting God and that what He says is true. It’s also putting our trust not just in what God says but who He is.
Here are some more thoughts for you.
Here’s a funny look at FAITH.
FAITH is also an adventure and one we get to share with God.
The Bible is full of people who have had adventures of faith. Their adventures started when God asked them to do something and they didn’t look at their circumstances or their feelings but simply obeyed and put their trust in God. It was a bit like that with the disciples. Jesus just said ‘Come follow me’ and they did. They gave up everything and went on this incredible adventure with Him!
What we place our FAITH in is so important. Everyone has a faith in something. For example you have faith that a car is going to get you to McDonalds otherwise you wouldn’t get in it-and you have faith that you can order a Big Mac at the drive through otherwise you wouldn’t get in a queue to wait for it. If you want to do the impossible however-you have to put your FAITH in GOD.
To become people of FAITH we must learn to take steps into the unknown and trust God.
The Bible is full of stories of people like Abraham, Esther and Moses who were all Heroes of Faith. Did you know that in the book of Hebrews there’s even a whole chapter that talks about the Heroes of Faith?
Right then, our Team Talk presenter this week is…Jon!
What a fantastic testimony from Jon about Ben-did you pass the test though and spot that it’s meant to be five loaves and two fish?
