"For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast." - Ephesians 2 V8, 9
"Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen." - Hebrews 11 V1
In our world of science and technology, we humans reason together to find the cause and effects of things found in nature and the laws of nature. We believe there are reasons for things for the way they behave. Well, when it comes to commandments and prophecies given by God, we are expected to receive it by faith. God has invited us to receive His Son Jesus Christ by faith as our personal Lord and Saviour. Sadly, people today try to reason the words found in the Holy Scriptures and they are willing to believe lies than to receive God's words by faith. There are many things in nature that we receive by faith and without questioning. For example, do we reason every breath we inhale? Perhaps not, but we just freely receive things available to us in nature. Jesus Christ is the only way to heaven and we are asked to receive Him by faith, for without faith it is impossible to please God.
"And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work." - Jesus Christ
Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!
