True Faith

"About midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the other prisoners were listening to them."
ACTS 16: 25

As Christians, we say we walk by faith, but do we fully understand what it means?

Jeremiah preached faithfully for more than sixty years without ever having a positive response to his message.

In fact, he faced being stoned to death.

But he lived by faith!

When the apostle Paul was thrown into prison because he'd preached the gospel of Jesus Christ, he lived by faith.

In fact, Paul prayed and sang hymns to God in prison.

Can you imagine what those jailers must have thought?

I doubt very much that Paul felt like singing.

But he had learned to live by faith, NOT by his feelings.

God commands you and me to exercise our will, to make the deliberate, conscious choice to walk by FAITH.

Start Trusting God!

Live by faith in Him — and in His Word!!

The rest will take care of itself!
