To have faith in action, you must first get a clear understanding of "faith"... it is not a feeling, not a stomach flutter, and not an exercise born of our human choices alone.  So, what is it?  How do we exercise faith?  Well, first we must understand it is not a mental concept--it is a substance, a thing, an activity.  Romans makes that very clear.  And, faith comes when we rely on our Older Brother, and not on ourselves alone.  Paul wanted us to understand that we war with a dead man--our flesh--but that Christ Himself, our Older Brother, has our back, indwells us through the Holy Spirit, and is ready and willing to help us fight our battles (when we finally humble ourselves enough to ask and give Him the honor and trust to do it). We are not our flesh; we are our new creature spirit-man and we have innumerable allies!  Just ask Elijah...  Oh, and there are four prerequistes to tangible, substantial faith ~  1) believe that He is, 2) believe that He is a rewarder of them who diligently seek Him, 3) diligently seek Him!, and 4) you will get understanding... one step at a time. Faith is the thing that comes when you do what you are supposed to do, and what is that? We follow the 'thing that good is', so we are to 'do good' and accomplish the purposes of Christ in this earth.  Faith ~ believe, know, seek and finally, because obedience is faith in action, go and do.   Access Deacon Joshua's notes at    Copyright 2016  All Rights Reserved
