The Basis of Faith

Do not base your faith on experience,

but

base your faith on the Word of God, in Jesus.

True faith is not based on an irrational feeling. When your prayers don’t seem to be answered, do not give up praying or living in step with God. Feelings are notoriously fickle and don’t determine what is true.

But keep listening to what God wants. Keep faith and move forward in Life. Faith is a logically reasoned determination, an extension from what is known to what must be – based on demonstrable evidence.

In essence, God isn’t true because we believe; we believe because God is true.

Even if things don’t seem to be working out …

We can be sure.

We can be certain.

 

1 Corinthians 2:4 My [Paul’s] message and my preaching were not with wise and persuasive words, but with a demonstration of the Spirit’s power, so that your faith might not rest on human wisdom, but on God’s power.
