LIVING BY FAITH

Confidence & Patience

Hebrews 10:38 – 39

"“Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him. 39But we are not of them who draw back unto perdition; but of them that believe to the saving of the soul”.

 

Friend, welcome to yet another uplifting month of God's goodness. Last month we began this series on the need to continue to live in the light of God's word, which is the living by faith, or the life of faith. This month we shall proceed to the two important keys that holds together the life of God's saints in this race of faith, or 'our pilgrimage journey' amidst this perverted world. Understanding, adhering and applying this truth from God's world will continue to give you the victory over the world, the flesh and the evil one.

 

We shall now examine the following words; Confidence and Patience; to better understand our work of faith, labour of love and patience of hope as it relates to our right standing (justified life) with God for our victory over the sin nature, Satan and the world.

 

Confidence

We are to have boldness; and are commanded to enter into the holies by the blood of Jesus Christ. When you approach the throne of grace; do it confidently, because the way is open already. Apostle Paul speaking concerning this said: “Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need” (Hebrews 4:16). As believers in Christ we should live a crucified life based on the cross of Christ. When we are truly regenerated and conformed into Christ image; our lifestyle produces the fruit of the Holy Spirit, which proceeds from a pure heart void of condemnation and strife. Apostle Peter speaking concerning this priceless and precious character of the Spirit at work in a regenerated believer' admonished us to avoid outward show but concentrate and live from within: “But let it be the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price” (1st Peter 3:4)  As believers in Christ we are called to a life of faith; a crucified life that faces oppositions from Satan and his co-host; trails of faith from scoffers and the enemies of the cross of Christ; even oppositions from false brethren; whose aim is to fatal your journey of faith, and throw obstacles and stumbling blocks on the racetrack as you run this heavenly race, and press forward towards the price of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 3:14, 1st Corinthians 9:24) Apostle Paul speaking concerning this falsehood and obstacles as a result of absolute reliance on the cross of Christ; encourages the brethren at Corinth and we believers in Christ today to continue to glorify God and press towards the finishing line – the Cross of Christ , where by faith we saw the light: “In journeyings often, imperils of waters, in perils of robbers, in perils by mine own countrymen, in perils by the heathen, in perils in the city, in perils in the wilderness, in perils in the sea, in perils among false brethren; In weariness and painfulness, in watching often, in hunger and thirst, in fastings often, in cold and nakedness. Beside those things that are without, that which cometh upon me daily, the care of all the churches. Who is weak, and I am not weak? Who is offended, and I burn not? If I must needs glory, I will glory of the things which concern mine infirmities.” (2nd Corinthians 11: 26 – 30, Galatians 2:4)
