Calling Faith

If I could speak to faith, I would say,

“HEY! GET BACK OVER HERE!”

With my left hand on my hip and my right hand pointing to faith.

This is where my imagination has brought me in this early morning. It was humorous for sometime, but then the thought became serious. Romans 10:17 came to my mind. If I need faith all I need to do is hear God’s word.

“Faith cometh by hearing and by hearing the word of God.” Romans 10:17

Hebrews 11:1 says faith is a substance. It is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen.

I will end this post here, with the suggestion to read Hebrews chapter 11.

Hebrews 11: 32-40″And what shall I more say? for the time would fail me to tell of Gedeon, and of Barak, and of Samson, and of Jephthae; of David also, and Samuel, and of the prophets: Who through faith subdued kingdoms, wrought righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions. Quenched the violence of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, out of weakness were made strong, waxed valiant in fight, turned to flight the armies of the aliens. Women received their dead raised to life again: and others were tortured, not accepting deliverance; that they might obtain a better resurrection: And others had trial of cruel mockings and scourgings, yea, moreover of bonds and imprisonment: They were stoned, they were sawn asunder, were tempted, were slain with the sword: they wandered about in sheepskins and goatskins; being destitute, afflicted, tormented; (Of whom the world was not worthy:) they wandered in deserts, and in mountains, and in dens and caves of the earth. And these all, having obtained a good report through faith, received not the promise: God having provided some better thing for us, that they without us should not be made perfect.”
