I am sure you have heard the old adage, "talk is cheap." And, it is cheap. Talk costs us nothing. As Christians, we are challenged to live by faith. 2 Corinthians 5:7 reads, "for we walk by faith, not by sight." One of the best definitions of faith is found in Romans 4:20-21, "Abraham never wavered in believing God's promise. In fact, his faith grew stronger, and in this he brought glory to God. 21 He was fully convinced that God is able to do whatever he promises."
We talk of "living by faith" or "walking by faith" but the truth is, we struggle to do things that out of our comfort zone, we hesitate to love and be kind to strangers, and we rarely respond so generously to a need, financial or otherwise, that leaves us fully dependent on God's faithfulness to survive. But, when we obey what God says and it takes us beyond our ability to succeed on our own, or to make it on our own resources, then we are walking in the realm of faith.
Faith is very simply obeying God even when it is beyond our abilities, our habits and our resources. Someone said that we are walking and living in faith when we understand that unless God is faithful, we will fail. And, thankfully, He is always faithful. But, often, we struggle to live out there where we must be fully dependent on God.
Please let me encourage you. Christ followers are people who are trusting in the righteousness of Jesus Christ. We have placed our faith in the righteousness of Jesus. And, if our world is going to learn about the love and forgiveness of Jesus, then we are going to have to live in faith. Tell someone today that Jesus loves them, better yet, love them and be kind and generous to them in faith, not because you can afford it, but because that is what God wants us to do.
