Make sure that your faith is in God and work out that faith in doing the will of God. Be a doer of His words and not a hearer only. Believing without following is still faithless and so faith without obedience is foolishness.
But without faith it is impossible to please him : for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.Hebrews 11:6
Believing that God exists is only the beginning; even the demons believe that much (James 2:19-20).
Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble. But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?James 2:19-20
God will not settle for mere acknowledgment of His existence. He wants your faith to lead to a personal, dynamic relationship, Faith without work is dead (James 2:26, 1:22).
For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.James 2:26
But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.James 1:22
God has given us minds, and they should be developed and used. To ignore intellectual growth is to live a stunted and naive life. God wants our trust and faith, even while we ponder and wonder about so many matters that are mysterious to us.
God has spoken to us—to our minds, hearts, and wills—in the person of Jesus Christ. We do not believe in a void, nor leap into the dark.
Faith is reasonable, though reason alone cannot explain the whole of it. Use your mind to think through your faith, but leave room for the unexplainable works of God.
Sometimes we wonder about the fate of those who haven’t heard of Christ and have never even had a Bible to read. God assures us that all who honestly seek him—who act in faith on the knowledge of God that they possess—will be rewarded.
When you tell others about the Good News, encourage them to be honest and diligent in their search for truth. Those who hear the Good News, however, are responsible for what they have heard (see 2 Corinthians 6:1-2).
Do you say that you have faith in God? If so, do you obey His worlds in your daily life? Are you living by Faith?
