Powerful Prayer Devotional – Your Faith Account
Last Friday we discussed the Powerful Prayer Devotional – God’s Promise To Do More… in our Devotional and Ephesians 3:20, a beautiful verse that speaks of us knowing the fullness and love of God which goes beyond what we can even imagine with the promise that Jesus gave as He ascended into Heaven giving us the Holy Spirit from God in Jesus’ place. Today, we look closer at Powerful Prayer Devotional – Your Faith Account, Christian Faith is defined by Wikipedia as:
The word translated as “faith” in the New Testament is the Greek word πίστις which can also be translated “belief” or “trust”. There are various views in Christianity regarding the nature of faith. Some see faith as being persuaded or convinced that something is true. In this view, a person believes something when they are presented with adequate evidence that it is true. Theologian Greg Boyd argues to the contrary, that faith includes doubt.
Then there are numerous views regarding the results of faith. Some believe that true faith results in good works, while others believe that while faith in Jesus brings eternal life, it does not necessarily result in good works.
Regardless of which approach to faith a Christian takes, all agree that the Christian faith is aligned with the ideals and the example of the life of Jesus. The Christian sees the mystery of God and his grace and seeks to know and become obedient to God. To a Christian, faith is not static but causes one to learn more of God and to grow; Christian faith has its origin in God.
