We have been studying Faith in our Tuesday night bible study and based upon what the bible says faith is and how we see God’s children living today are complete opposites.
86% of the people in America say they are Christian. We know that number is extremely exaggerated and is not even close to being accurate. If 86% of the people in America were Christians and a sheep of the flock of God; America would not be in the pitiful condition it is presently.
Faith is having more confidence in what God has done for me, then what Satan can do to me.
Yesterday’s faith contained enough power to meet the demands of evil, yesterday. It takes ‘Now Faith’, today’s faith to meet the demands of evil today.
We are our own worst enemy, or our loudest cheerleader. Therefore, we can never point the finger at anyone else and blame them for our failures because there are always three times as many fingers pointing back at us as there are pointing at those we blame.
The purpose of Christianity and the reason God provides for us is so that we might spend as much time as possible bringing God’s lost sheep back home and into the kingdom of God where they will be looked after and cared for by the Master Himself.
Mary was interceding for her friends and she knew Jesus could take care of the situation. When He told her it wasn’t any of His concern, she didn’t get upset, she turned to the servants standing nearby and said, “Whatever He tells you to do, do it!”
If Jesus had listened to the religious leaders of His day and came down from His cross; we would still be lost in our sin and on our way to hell. Religion would send us all to hell, but Jesus didn’t listen to them and experienced the full range of pain and emotions that accompany His cross experience. As a result of Him embracing His cross, more people have been won to Him through His death then He ever won with preaching while He was alive on earth. If that were not true, we would not be sitting here today reading of His refusal to come down from the cross because we needed a Savior, we didn’t need an escape artist to be our God.
