THE PROFIT OF FAITH
By DIGC 30 June 2021
Faith makes life colourful, beautiful, and wonderful.
SCRIPTURE: For unto us was the gospel preached, as well as unto them: but the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it. Hebrews 4:2
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Faith makes life colourful, beautiful, and wonderful.
The Scripture makes it clear that faith is valuable. Faith is profitable. The Word of God will profit you, when it is mixed with faith. The Bible says:
What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? can faith save him? James 2:14,
Take note of, “What doth it profit…”.
So, faith has profits. Faith adds value to life. This means, a great measure of value can be lost where faith is absent. Life can be practically valueless without faith. Life can be practically lacking in profit where faith is absent.
The question is: what is the value or profit of faith? What value or profit does faith bring?
Faith enhances both the quality and durability of life.
Faith makes life worth living. You don’t wish for death in the life of faith. Life is not a burden when lived in faith. Faith makes life colourful, beautiful, and wonderful. Faith makes life worth living. No wonder, the just shall live by faith (Habakkuk 2:4, Romans 1:17).
By the operation of faith, Lazarus was not permitted to remain dead even after being buried. Martha confronted Jesus with a declaration of faith first (John 11:21-23). And later on, Jesus said, I told you, if you believe you would see the glory of God.
Beloved, if your life is lacking colour, worth, value, or beauty, you need to shift it from that realm of colourlessness to the realm of colourfulness by the operation of faith.
Remember this: Faith makes life colourful, beautiful, and wonderful.
- Build your faith by studying the Word of God daily.
- Consistently declare the Word of God into your life.
