The 10 Values Of Faith || #10 Love

values_1

Good Afternoon All! It’s Here, The Final Installment To The Values Of Faith Series, I Encourage U To Go Back Over Them From Time To Time To Recap In The Future & Of Course, Don’t Be Selfish, Share These Encouraging Posts With Others. Now Let’s Finalize…

To be in faith is to be sincere with yourself, God and others, especially when it comes to acknowledging your mistakes or asking for help.

To put in to perspective, to be in faith is to eliminate the feelings of fear, doubts, angers, grudge, worries etc… and hold tight onto courage, belief, happiness, forgiveness and certainty. It’s easier said than done but it is possible, just ask anyone who is successful in their respective field of work.

So relating it to God, always remember what it says in the Holy Bible:

“But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.” Hebrews 11:6 NKJV

Faith has everything to do with reason, with emotions following behind (not leading, but following). We have learnt that the 1st attribute of faith is A Good Conscience, the 2nd attribute is Honesty, the 3rd attribute is Justice, the 4th attribute is Truth, the 5th attribute is Sincerity, the 6th attribute is Faithfulness, the 7th attribute is Honour, the 8th attribute is Discipline and the 9th attribute is Self-Respect.

Hmmm I wonder what the last value is:

10. LOVE

il_570xN.577018324_rx91

He who does not love does not know God, for God is love. I John 4:8 NKJV

But if you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? For even sinners love those who love them. Luke 6:32 NKJV

Throughout this series, I have stressing the key fact about faith, that it has everything to do with a person’s reason. Emotion are deceitful and highly unstable, so God doesn’t expect us to live by emotions, but by faith (reason).

The concept of love is a sensitive subject, with many having their own conclusion and belief on what it is about and if it is a feeling or not etc… But i’m here to tell you that love, as described in the bible is God Himself.

And if you meditate on the bible and see the times in which God manifested Himself, whether it was through a miracle, through a sign, when instructing His servants, when performing His righteous justice & through the Lord Jesus Himself, it was always done via love.

This love wasn’t emotional, think about it, if God’s love was emotional, do you think he would have ever sent the Lord Jesus to die for the sins of the world? OF COURSE! If anything He would send a destroyer to eliminate all those people who had disrespected, betrayed, blasphemed, lied and robbed Him, after all, they would have deserved it.

But as we all know:

For God so love the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16 NKJV

This is LOVE! Taking actions in spite of how you may feel. When we show love to people, especially those who really test your patience and disrespect you or when you forgive that person who betrayed your trust or did something immensely evil to you, we are living by faith and above all pleasing God.

For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses. Matthew 6:14-15 NKJV

It is very hard to practice love sometimes, I can’t lie even for me as a Christian, but it is not impossible. Only living be faith (reason) would some make such a sacrifice.

I Hope U Have Been Blessed By These Posts. NOW GO LIVE BY FAITH =]

The 10 Values Of Faith || #9 Self-Respect

values_1

Allo Reader! This is the penultimate value. I hope you have been blessed and encouraged by these posts…

To be in faith is to be sincere with yourself, God and others, especially when it comes to acknowledging your mistakes or asking for help.

To put in to perspective, to be in faith is to eliminate the feelings of fear, doubts, angers, grudge, worries etc… and hold tight onto courage, belief, happiness, forgiveness and certainty. It’s easier said than done but it is possible, just ask anyone who is successful in their respective field of work.

So relating it to God, always remember what it says in the Holy Bible:

“But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.” Hebrews 11:6 NKJV

Faith has everything to do with reason, with emotions following behind (not leading, but following). We have learnt that the 1st attribute of faith is A Good Conscience, the 2nd attribute is Honesty, the 3rd attribute is Justice, the 4th attribute is Truth, the 5th attribute is Sincerity, the 6th attribute is Faithfulness, the 7th attribute is Honour and the 8th attribute is Discipline.

Onto the next value, it is none other than:

9. SELF-RESPECT

esteembutton

For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s. 1 Corinthians 6:20 NKJV

Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. 2 Timothy 2:15 NKJV

Let’s have a look at the definition of self-respect:

  1. Pride and confidence in oneself; a feeling that one is behaving with honour and dignity – Google
  2. proper sense of one’s own dignity and integrity – The Free Dictionary

When you look around, at the world we now live in, we can clearly see that self-respect is depreciating everyday. I’m not old, but I can remember a time in which people weren’t so willing to do anything and everything for a bit of attention, money, pleasure and “15mins” of fame.

I believe every human being has the desire to be respected in some shape or form by friends, family and strangers, but not every person goes about gaining this respect in the appropriate and morally accepted way.

I’m not here to point out if what you choose to do, the way you choose to act or dress and the way you choose to speak is immoral or not, your conscious does that for you, but i’m here to let you know that, you were bought at a price. When you choose to use your head and show in you actions some self-respect, even though the majority of the world is choosing to show a lack of it, you are pleasing God by using your faith.

It’s easy to be reckless and follow your deceiving, selfish and unpredictable heart, ESPECIALLY NOWADAYS.

In reality, you may get respect from your peers, colleagues, friends, social media and family (most probably because they are practicing lack of self-respect) but you will never get it from God.

The question is, who’s respect is more important to you, mans’ respect or Gods’ respect?

He who loves father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me. And he who loves son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me. And he who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me. Matthew 10:37-38 NKJV

Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—is not of the Father but is of the world. 1 John 2:15-16 NKJV

The 10 Values Of Faith || #8 Discipline

Good Evening Mate! And I’m Back Again With Another Attribute Of Faith. I Hope From These Series Of Posts, You Are Actually Using Ur Faith In God & To Achieve Ur Goals. If Not, Start Right After This Post…

To be in faith is to be sincere with yourself, God and others, especially when it comes to acknowledging your mistakes or asking for help.

To put in to perspective, to be in faith is to eliminate the feelings of fear, doubts, angers, grudge, worries etc… and hold tight onto courage, belief, happiness, forgiveness and certainty. It’s easier said than done but it is possible, just ask anyone who is successful in their respective field of work.

If you haven’t got it from the title already, the 8th attribute is:

8. DISCIPLINE

self-discipline

He who is slow to anger is better than the mighty, And he who rules his spirit than he who takes a city. Proverbs 16:32 NKJV

To be disciplined is a conscious decision and act. It requires the person to ignore the screaming noise of the heart and listen to the quiet but assertive voice of the mind. It demands the person to fight against the pressure of the feelings at that moment and think about the rational route.

We have all experienced a moment in life when we had to decide to either be disciplined or reckless, and unfortunately, the majority of us (including myself) chose to be reckless and irrational. King Solomon, inspired by the Holy Spirit, tell us that the person with self discipline is greater than the mighty.

Why is that? because it’s easy to be reckless and irrational, it’s easy to live by how we feel. It’s hard to think when the pressures of the heart activates, it’s hard not to feed those feelings. However, if you can resist and decide to be disciplined, your are living by faith, and through that, pleasing God.

Rule & subdue your heart; or else you’ll be a slave to it and be no different to an animal. Discipline is the bridge between goal and accomplishment.

The 10 Values Of Faith || #7 Honour

Hello Faithful Readers, I Bless Your New Week In Jesus Name, Amen! Now Have A Read Of This…

To be in faith is to be sincere with yourself, God and others, especially when it comes to acknowledging your mistakes or asking for help.

To put in to perspective, to be in faith is to eliminate the feelings of fear, doubts, angers, grudge, worries etc… and hold tight onto courage, belief, happiness, forgiveness and certainty. It’s easier said than done but it is possible, just ask anyone who is successful in their respective field of work.

We have learnt that the 1st attribute of faith is A Good Conscience, the 2nd attribute is Honesty, the 3rd attribute is Justice, the 4th attribute is Truth, the 5th attribute is Sincerity and the 6th attribute is Faithfulness. I wonder what the 7th attribute is:

7. HONOUR

honour

“for those who honor Me I will honor, and those who despise Me shall be lightly esteemed.” 1 Samuel 2:30 NKJV

I started this whole series to inform and help believers and Christians please God, and we have found out that to please God, we must use faith. To give honour God and people requires faith, as faith is intelligent, not emotional.

Honour entails a lot of attributes itself e.g. love, respect, dedication, trust, grace etc… As a true Christians, it is our duty to honour God and people alike. Look what the Holy Spirit said through the apostle Peter:

Honor all people. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honor the king. 1 Peter 2:17 NKJV

And if that isn’t enough, look what the Lord Jesus said for us to do, which sums up how honour is an attribute of faith:

Jesus said to him, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’” Matthew 22:37-39 NKJV 

Honour and love are one in the same, love is not an emotion, it is a decision. I hope your understanding.

The 10 Values Of Faith || #6 Faithful

values_1

Hello Faithful Readers, Hope You’re Being Blessed By This Series Of Posts. Let’s Continue & Learn About The 6th Attribute…

To be in faith is to be sincere with yourself, God and others, especially when it comes to acknowledging your mistakes or asking for help.

To put in to perspective, to be in faith is to eliminate the feelings of fear, doubts, angers, grudge, worries etc… and hold tight onto courage, belief, happiness, forgiveness and certainty. It’s easier said than done but it is possible, just ask anyone who is successful in their respective field of work.

“But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.” Hebrews 11:6 NKJV

Faith has everything to do with reason, with emotions following behind (not leading, but following). We have learnt that the 1st attribute of faith is A Good Conscience, the 2nd attribute is Honesty, the 3rd attribute is Justice, the 4th attribute is Truth and the 5th attribute is Sincerity. Number 6 is:

6. FAITHFUL

kanji_faithful

His lord said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant; you were faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord.’ Matthew 25:21 NKJV

It wouldn’t make sense if faithfulness wasn’t an attribute of faith, would it? After all, it has the word faith in the word. If you look around, at the world we are currently living in, faithfulness is something that is very rare unfortunately.

It seems as times goes on, it’s losing more and more of it’s value in people’s daily acts. You can ask even your parents or older relatives and friends, if people were so unfaithful when they were younger, and most definetly their answers will be NO!

So what has happened to (when you think about it) this essential attribute of any relationship? Well, both the Lord Jesus and the Apostle Paul, when speaking about the end times said by the Holy Spirit:

And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold. Matthew 24:12 NKJV

But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be LOVERS OF THEMESELVES, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, TRAITORS, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away! 2 Timothy 3:1-5 NKJV

Honestly, it can be hard to want to be faithful when we live in a anti faithful world. The easy option of course is to follow the crowd, but in doing this, you won’t be pleasing God, only the devil.

Being faithful means staying loyal to what you said you would do, long after the mood and circumstances you said it in goes away.

When it comes to your relationship with God and anyone else, remaining faithful is never an option, but is your priority, it’s justice. Loyalty is everything.

The 10 Values Of Faith || #5 Sincerity

values_1

Allo Allo Allo =] I’m Back Again With Another Value Of Faith, I Hope This Series Has Been Enlightening U All…

To be in faith is to be sincere with yourself, God and others, especially when it comes to acknowledging your mistakes or asking for help.

To put in to perspective, to be in faith is to eliminate the feelings of fear, doubts, angers, grudge, worries etc… and hold tight onto courage, belief, happiness, forgiveness and certainty. It’s easier said than done but it is possible, just ask anyone who is successful in their respective field of work.

So relating it to God, always remember what it says in the Holy Bible:

“But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.” Hebrews 11:6 NKJV

Faith has everything to do with reason, with emotions following behind (not leading, but following). We have learnt that the 1st attribute of faith is A Good Conscience, the 2nd attribute is Honesty, the 3rd attribute being Justice and the 4th attribute being Truth.

And now the 5th attribute is:

5. SINCERITY

abstract sincerity key drawn with chalk on blackboard

Now therefore, fear the Lord, serve Him in sincerity and in truth, and put away the gods which your fathers served on the other side of the River and in Egypt. Serve the Lord! Joshua 24:14 NKJV

Sincerity is a key attribute of faith. It take a lot of courage and strength to not put on a front (especially nowadays) but be transparent with God, yourself and people in general.

The majority of people nowadays are trying so hard to portray themselves as “perfect” on social media, to family, friends, colleagues etc… that they forget that no one can and will be perfect.

“I, the Lord, search the heart, I test the mind, Even to give every man according to his ways, According to the fruit of his doings.” Jeremiah 17:10 NKJV

You may be able to deceive people for awhile (keyword AWHILE) but you cannot deceive yourself, and especially not God who knows your inner most feelings and thoughts.

And just like the Lord Jesus said:

For nothing is secret that will not be revealed, nor anything hidden that will not be known and come to light. Luke 8:17 NKJV

When a person is sincere, it is very hard for anyone and the devil to embarrass or accuse them, as they are transparent. Why not use your reason and please God by being sincere with yourself, with Him and with people.

The 10 Values Of Faith || #4 Truth

values_1

Good Day Mate =D So The Values Of Faith Series Continues. Here’s The 4th Value…

To be in faith is to be sincere with yourself, God and others, especially when it comes to acknowledging your mistakes or asking for help.

To put in to perspective, to be in faith is to eliminate the feelings of fear, doubts, angers, grudge, worries etc… and hold tight onto courage, belief, happiness, forgiveness and certainty. It’s easier said than done but it is possible, just ask anyone who is successful in their respective field of work.

“But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.” Hebrews 11:6 NKJV

Faith has everything to do with reason, with emotions following behind (not leading, but following). We have learnt that the 1st attribute of faith is A Good Conscience, the 2nd attribute is Honesty and the 3rd attribute being Justice. If you haven’t already guessed from the title of this post, the 4th attribute is as followed:

4. TRUTH

TruthHasNoAgenda

Lying lips are an abomination to the LordBut those who deal truthfully are His delight. Proverbs 12:22 NKJV

I’ll be the first to admit that I use to lie a lot, as a child, mainly to get out of trouble with my mum and as a teenager, mainly to get things by deceiving. But in modern day, Who doesn’t lie, right? Who doesn’t commit a white lie every now and again, right? As long as it isn’t hurting anyone, what’s the big deal right?

WRONG!

The truth is, God has nothing to do with lies and everything to do with the truth. Many people, even so called “Christians” lie daily?

When you think about it, to be truthful requires faith because it’s so easy to just lie. Some may even say “what the point of being truthful, especially nowadays, as a lot of people don’t like hearing the truth?”. Lying deviates people from the truth which is a moral injustice in itself.

As the bible verse says, those who are truthful are God’s delight; in other words, you are pleasing God. To be in faith is to use our reason, and whether or not it mean you will get into trouble or not, whether or not the person will be happy with you after what you tell them the truth or not, think about which eternal being you will be pleasing, the Lord Jesus or the devil?

Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the TRUTH, and the life. John 14:6 NKJV

“You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it.” John 8:44 NKJV
