It is impossible to please God without faith. Works are great and flow out of christian life, but faith is the key to pleasing God. Today, Paul van Essen explains why this is the case.
Evangelist and friend Ps Robert Cameron from Wave Church, Virginia Beach, USA brings an encouraging word to Greater Life. Wherever your are in life and whatever you are doing in life, we all have areas where we need to see breakthrough. And God is for us in this! Using examples from the bible, Ps Cameron looks at men of faith and identifies key elements that either hinder breakthrough or facilitate it. Naaman received his breakthrough; he was healed of leprosy, but what personal changes did he have to make to get it?
Faith is built on hope. Faith has power and causes things to change: "By faith people passed through the Red Sea as on dry land... By faith the walls of Jericho fell...By faith the prostitute Rahab, because she welcomed the spies was not killed..." (Hebrews 11:29-31 NIV edited). And the amazing thing is, this power is in our hands. We can choose whether of not to live in the faith zone.
"And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. but the greatest of these is love." (1 Cor 13:13 NIV)
Have you ever wondered what exactly faith is and how it differs from hope? Ps Paul reveals all as teaches on one of his favourite areas - FAITH. To live by faith we must know what it is and how to develop it in our lives. Just as a diamond has many facets, so faith has many truths. It is trust. It is being fully convinced. It is a substance and treasure within you that is more precious than gold. It is what causes you to live for another world. Listening to this message will inspire and illuminate.
Every human being longs for love. We sing about it, write poetry about it and make films about our desire to be loved. In this episode Ps Paul teaches on Perfect Love; the God kind of love.
