It’s all about Faith!

It’s all about Faith

Measuring Your Faith

Matthew 9:29

Then touched he their eyes, saying, According to your faith be it unto you.

What Jesus did not say it was according to:

not Fate

not Fame

not Friends

not Feelings

There are five different kinds of Faith affection out lives

Natural Faith

Faith in a mailbox, that the letters will be delivered

Intellectual Faith

Baking a cake would demonstrate intellectual faith, that the result would come out according to following the ingredients.

Historical Faith

We believe that George Washington lived and was our first President

Saving Faith

Bible Faith, the belief that God will save us through our faith in Jesus

Victorious Faith

We believe God will give us the opportunity to lead someone to Christ

Differing Degrees of Faith

No Faith

Do not have the faith to step out and say, “I’ll do something” or “God, give me guidance”

Little Faith

Not having the trust to follow what God has set forth for you to do

Weak Faith

An immature Christian, someone who needs help, loving and “stronger” Christians to receive them

Dead Faith

Genuine faith always brings action, you can tell someone has faith when it is genuine.  Dead faith shows nothing.

Vain Faith

Empty faith, showing faith in something that can do nothing for you.

Great Faith

Full of Faith

Steadfast Faith

Someone you can count on to be faithful at any time.

Rich in Faith

Someone who’s faith is more valuable than money

Precious Faith
