STEADFASTNESS OF FAITH

2019 – WEDNESDAY 24 APRIL

STEADFASTNESS OF FAITH

Colossians 2:4&5
Now this I say lest anyone should deceive you with persuasive words. For though I am absent in the flesh, yet I am with you in spirit, rejoicing to see your good order and the steadfastness of your faith in Christ.

THE PROOF OF STEADFAST FAITH

JOINED IN SPIRIT
Faith in Christ connects people together with an unshakeable hope. We are united in believing.

REJOICING
Faith always brings a spirit of joy and rejoicing. Not in our works but in the finished work of Jesus Christ.
We rejoice because His promises are always yes and amen.

GOOD ORDER
The faith life is best seen in a well ordered life. Things are in right order. Not perfect but in right order before God. Marriages and families in right order. Business and pleasure in right order.

FAITH IN CHRIST
All our faith is in Christ.
In Him we live and move and have our being.
His strength is made perfect in our weakness. His commitment to see the cross of Calvary through to the end – is our assurance we can stay the path with a hope that makes not ashamed.

PERSUASIVE WORDS
When faith is lost we resort to persuasive words that sound like faith – but lack the life giving power of the Holy Spirit.
Faith in Christ produces miracles.
Persuasive words are smoke screens – hiding a lack of faith.

1 Corinthians 15:58
Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord.
