Faith is…

                                                              … important!

 
Faith is not just important
faith is essential,
because,
      without faith it is impossible to please God,
      Heb. 11:6

However,
… faith is not about what you do,
but faith is about what God has done
… and about what Jesus has done!

So how then do I get faith?
      For by grace you have been saved through faith,
      and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God,
      not of works, lest anyone should boast.
      Eph 2:8-9

Faith is a gift
      looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith,
      Heb 12:2

Therefore, as you get to know Him,
… through reading and meditating on His Word,
faith will come!

How does faith grow?

      Our faith does not grow just by reading the Bible,
      … unless God Himself is part of our time in His Word.
      Faith does not grow because of our efforts,
      … or even because of how many times we confess the Word.
      Spend time with Him and in His Word,
      … and let Him grow your faith through His Word,

      So then faith comes by hearing,
      and hearing by the (rhema) word of God.
      Romans 10:17
