The Significance Of Our Faith In Our Lord And Saviour Jesus Christ. We Need Faith In Everything. We Need Faith To Cover The Mistakes Of Our Past And To Boldly Face Tomorrow. We Will Even Need To Die By Faith, Believing That God Is Waiting To Receive Us Into His Eternal Presence In Heaven. We Need Faith For Today And For Tomorrow. Only a Faith in Jesus Christ Is True, Tested, and Timeless.
Text: HABAKKUK 2:4
Good morning dear Brethren, using the words from the conversation between the Almighty God and the prophet Habakkuk in Chapter 2:4, ”Look at the proud one, his soul is not right within him, but the righteous will live by his faith [in the True God],” I would like to encourage us this morning to place our Faith in Jesus Christ, in everything that concerns us. Our faith should be about more than just getting to Heaven, it should be a way of life. It is how we are called to live, as children of God. In the journey life, we don’t always know the answers to the questions that life throws at us, but God does [in fact, He Is The Answer to every question], and we can put our Faith in Him.
We need faith in everything and it should therefore be our way of life. We need faith to build successful homes and families, we need faith to raise our children, we need faith to manage our finances, we need faith concerning our businesses and our jobs, to work hard with integrity and to look to God as our Source of Provision instead of looking to a company, an organisation or even the government.
We need faith to cover the mistakes of our past and to boldly face tomorrow. When we reach the end of our journey here on earth, we will even need to die by faith, believing that God is waiting to receive us into His Eternal Presence in Heaven. Indeed, we need faith for today and for tomorrow. And everybody has some level of faith, but where we place our faith is very important, and it is a matter of choice. For the one who believes in Jesus Christ and what He did at the Cross of Calvary, our Faith MUST be in Him, and Him Alone. Everyone and everything else – people, abilities, skills, material possessions, relationships, paychecks, investments, systems, institutions – may prove to be not-so-reliable, but God Is our Rock, our Refuge, our Hiding Place, our High Tower, and our Stronghold in times of trouble. He Is our Hope, He Is our Peace, He Is our Joy, He Is our Strength, He Is The Source of Everything that we need. He Is the ONLY One Who NEVER fails and the ONLY One worth putting our faith In.
The Bible tells us in the Book of 1 Peter 1:24. For, “ALL FLESH IS LIKE GRASS, AND ALL ITS GLORY LIKE THE FLOWER OF GRASS. THE GRASS WITHERS AND FLOWERS FALL OF,
25. BUT THE WORD OF THE LORD ENDURES FOREVER.”
If our faith is set upon things of this world, then our faith will perish. Countless kingdoms have come and gone, economies have been built and destroyed, nations have been established and vanished. All that is left of those kingdoms are the ruins you can see in a museum. Only the Kingdom of God has remained constant since the beginning of time. Our Faith is to be placed in Him. It is the only way that our faith is imperishable.
Where do you put your faith? Will your anchor of faith hold in the storms of life? Is your faith a true anchor? Is your faith built upon the Truth of Scripture? Is your faith tested? Do you know how valuable, revealing, and full of love, a faith in Jesus Christ is? Is your faith timeless, or will the newest trend or the latest philosophy cause you to tie to a new anchor? Only a Faith in Jesus Christ Is True, Tested, and Timeless.
May the Lord help us to make Him our Anchor, in the Name of Jesus so that we can rest in Him and in the safety and assurance of His Infallible Word.
Thank You Jesus.
Jesus Loves You.
