The reality…

Posted on Posted in Faith, Trust

                                                … of faith!

In the Bible we read about God,
… about the love He has for us,
… about His goodness and His promises to us.
Promises that the Bible also tells us
… are ours by faith.

But what is the reality of this ‘faith’?
When do these promises become REAL in our lives?
Obviously not just by accepting, reading or confessing
… as we have all tried that with little or no success.

Jesus made this statement…
      I have come that they may have life,
      and that they may have it more abundantly.
      John 10 10

Clearly telling us that through Him we can receive life,
… a life that has the potential of abundance
… as we actively live that potential with Him!

How do we do that?
Simply by doing what the apostle James said,

      Thus faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.
      James 2 17

In other words,
only as we live what we say we have received,
what we confess as being ours,
only then does what we believe become real.
That is when our step of faith becomes real,
… and when God’s promises become a reality
because we are truly living life,
… that life Jesus came that we may have,
that abundant life that is ours in Him!
