Principles Of Faith

The Word of God has a lot to say about faith, the following are a series of sermons on faith. If people will adhere to these principles they will be victorious in every area of their life.

The bible says in;

Heb 11:6 But without faith [it is] impossible to please [him]: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and [that] he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

We all want to please God,  so walking in faith will be pleasing to God.

The Bible also says in;

1Jo 5:4 For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, [even] our faith. {is born: Gr. has been born}

The bible tells us that if we are born again we can overcome the world, and that means every thing that is in the world. The way we do that is by faith so we can see that faith is important.

This series of sermons is called Principles of Faith

We have already established that faith is important.

The devil will do everything he can to hinder your faith,

He will try to get you in doubt and unbelief.  He will try to keep you ignorant of the Word of God. He will try to get you to believe doctrine or tradition

(For we walk by faith, not by sight:)

That has the connotation of a life style
