Without faith, there is no future for the just.
SCRIPTURE: Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Hebrews 11: 1.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Without faith, there is no future for the just.
Faith is one subject that is often misunderstood by many Christians. Some people believe that faith is a doctrine of a particular denomination or a group of Christians and so, they don’t have anything to do with it. Such people can say things like, “We are the holiness people. We are not the faith and prosperity people. We are the prayer people. Ours is not the line of faith and prosperity”. The truth is, there is nothing like that.
Habakkuk 2:4 says,
…but the just shall live by his faith.
So, provided you are not a sinner or a Godless person – whether you are a holiness person or a prayer person; whatever your affiliation, so long as you are just and want to live a quality life, it must be by the frequency of faith.
Romans 1:17 says,
For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.
This means, without faith, there is no future for the just.
Now, what is faith? I will give you one definition of faith today:
Faith is in place when the revelation of the word of God in the heart of a person produces a conviction that is strong enough to result in corresponding actions.
When faith is in place, the revelation of the Word of God in the heart of a person produces a conviction that is strong enough to result in corresponding actions.
Remember this: Without faith, there is no future for the just.
