By Faith............

Faith in action

11 Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. This is what the ancients were commended for.
By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God’s command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible.

Without faith that God is who He says He is and acting on it according to His ways, we stand on nothing. To answer the call of God requires a deep commitment in action that backs up the belief that we claim.  I cannot say I believe in God and Follow Christ unless I then act like I do. To follow (to believe) is to imitate God's way of living.  The beginning of understanding is to know His word (truth)(respect for God).  Daily study of the word of God layered with prayer for understanding and truth is imperative to growth. 
We are not saved by acting and doing what we believe is right.  We are saved by God's grace when Christ laid down his life blood, thus paying for all our sins.  But we cannot continue in grace if we willingly and continually  sin to the point we let the Holy spirit within us become stagnant.  But fear not for none that God has called will be lost if they remain in humble surrender to Him.  God never fails in the life of the willing heart that seeks and lays his life down to His ways.  No matter how many times we fail at things He is always there to help us get back up.  

For those who have remained in His Word for all these years know the times are short. Do not now grow cold and lukewarm. But stir up the Spirit within you!  Be vigilant and fruitful!
Stand up for what you know is right and truth according to the Word of God!  Do not deny who you are in Christ! For God is with you!
