Family Friday: Faith is the fruit of Christians

What is faith?

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” Hebrews 11:1
Faith, simply is belief in something you cannot see.

Things that faith offers:
1. Remission of sins.
“To him give all the prophets witness, that through his name whosoever believes in him shall receive remission of sins.” Acts 10:43. 
”For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:Not of works, lest any man should boast.” Ephesians 2:8-9

2. Justification.  
“and by him all that believe are justified from all things, from which ye could not be justified by the law of Moses.” Acts13:39

3. Freedom from condemnation. 
“He that believes on him is not condemned: but he that believes not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.” John3:18

4. Salvation.
 “He that believes and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believes not shall be damned.” Mark 16:16 
“For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” John3:16

Some things We are to do by faith:
1.  We are to live by faith.
“For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.” Romans 1:17

2. We are to walk by faith.
“And the father of circumcision to them who are not of the circumcision only, but who also walk in the steps of that faith of our father Abraham, which he had being yet uncircumcised.” Romans 4:12

3. Pray by faith.
”And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.” Matthew21:12

4. Overcome the world by faith.
“I write unto you, fathers, because ye have known him that is from the beginning. I write unto you, young men, because ye have overcome the wicked one. I write unto you, little children, because ye have known the Father.
I have written unto you, fathers, because ye have known him that is from the beginning. I have written unto you, young men, because ye are strong, and the word of God abides in you, and ye have overcome the wicked one.
Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.”
  I John 2:13-15

Faith is the core of the Christian walk
“For what if some did not believe? Shall their unbelief make the faith of God without effect?” Romans 3:3

Just because one does not believe faith is still faith.
“Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law.” Romans 3:28

We are saved by faith, not by something we do!
“Not boasting of things without our measure, that is, of other men's labors; but having hope, when your faith is increased, that we shall be enlarged by you according to our rule abundantly”  II Corinthians 10:15
