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.
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 and the 6th attribute is Faithfulness. I wonder what the 7th attribute is:
“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.
