Key Passage ~ “He who doubts is condemned if he eats, because he does not eat from faith; for whatever is not from faith is sin” (Romans 14:23).
Dwight L. Moody ~ “I prayed for faith, and thought that someday faith would come down and strike me like lightning. But faith did not seem to come. One day I read the tenth chapter of Romans, ‘Now faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God.’ I had closed my Bible, and prayed for faith. I now opened my Bible, and began to study, and faith has been growing ever since.”
Charles Haddon Spurgeon ~ “Faith is believing Christ is who He said He was and that He’ll do what He promised to do—and then living accordingly”
Closing Passage ~ “To him who … believes on Him who justifies the ungodly, his faith is accounted for righteousness, just as David also describes the blessedness of the man to whom God imputes righteousness apart from works: ‘Blessed are those whose lawless deeds are forgiven, and whose sins are covered; blessed is the man to whom the Lord shall not impute sin’” (Romans 4:5-8).
Closing Comment ~ Faith appropriates, accepts, and looks upward. Hope anticipates, expects, and looks forward.
