Day 5.

We saw on Day 4, that the world has varying views of "faith" and what it means to possess or even act on it...

Today, I want to focus a bit on the Bible. Can I???!! I do love it so!!

God's written Word gives us such a beautiful and unashamed display of "faith" and mostly in the very stories we read within its' pages! But to include all of those, I'd really just need to leave a link to the Bible itself ... OP, and there it is!! 

For the purposes of this series, though, I have included some of my favorite verses that depict FAITH or describe it as a whole... enjoy!!!

Matthew 17:20 "I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, "Move from here to there," and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you."

1 Peter 1:21 "Through Him you believe in God, who raised him from the dead and glorified him, and so your faith and hope are in God." 

1 Peter 1:7 "These have come so that your faith, of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire, may be proved genuine and may result in praise, glory, and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed."

2 Corinthians 5:7 "We live by faith, not by sight."

1 Peter 1:9 "For you are receiving the goal of your faith, the salvation of your souls."

1 John 5:4 "For everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith."

Colossians 1:5 "The faith and love that spring from hope that is stored up for you in heaven and that you have already heard about in the world of truth, the gospel."

Titus 1:2 "A faith and knowledge resting on the hope of eternal life, which God, who does not lie, promised before the beginning of time."

1 Corinthians 15:17 "And if Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile."

1 Timothy 6:12 "Fight the good fight of faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called when you made your good confession in the presence of many witnesses."

Ephesians 6:16 "In addition to all this; take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one."

1 Corinthians 2:5 "So that your faith might not rest on man's wisdom, but on God's power."

2 Corinthians 1:24 "It is by faith that you stand firm."
