Faith ~ that wonderful gift to us from God ~ is not just a gift. It is a giver of gifts.
Faith builds us up…
“But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith…”
Faith gives us victory…
“And this is the victory that has overcome the world ~ our faith.”
1 John 5:4
Faith leads to salvation…
“… receiving the end of your faith ~ the salvation of your souls.”
1 Peter 1:9
Faith saves the sick…
“the prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise him up.”
Faith produces patience when tested…
“… knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience.”
Faith knocks down walls…
“By faith the walls of Jericho fell down after they were encircled for seven days.”
By faith we see beauty, and we are not afraid…
“By faith Moses, when he was born, was hidden three months by his parents, because they saw he was a beautiful child; and they were not afraid of the king’s command.”
And by faith, we bring Him praise, honor and glory
“the genuineness of your faith, being much more precious than gold that perishes, though it is tested by fire, may be found to praise, honor and glory at the revelation of Jesus Christ.”
1 Peter 1:7
Clearly, if you have faith, you have a lot more than just faith.
