Faith?

Faith is the substance

Just what is the Christian life all about? I suppose the easiest way to explain it to a non-Christian is that it is a life of faith in Jesus Christ. To the non-Christian, the way to live the Christian life is by utilizing the choice God gave you when you were born and accepting Christ as your Lord and Savior by faith. And once you become a Christian you live your life knowing that Jesus has saved you from a life of eternal hell. So how does one know someone is a Christian? This is one of the hardest things to understand nowadays. How do you know someone is a Christian? Have you ever wondered what the visible manifestation of faith is? In other words, how can others see that someone is a Christian?

Jesus tells us in Matthew 5:16, “Let your life shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works and glorify your Father who is in heaven.” (NASV) Jesus is the Light of the World, and at salvation, we become children of Light. You see, with Jesus living in us, our character, attitude and words change. When we accepted Christ, He gave us the good work we are supposed to do. Our job is to follow Him and do the work He gave us to do. And how do we know what that work is?

Growing in Faith Together

The life of Christ is the life we are to follow. Jesus performed many good works during His life here on earth. Every good work that He did was because it was God’s will for Him. As a Christian, this should also be our goal as well. How do we know what that is? Simply put, He gave us a guide, the Bible, which lays out the path we are to follow. And if we follow that guide the Lord will be glorified through us.

  1. How we are to live today is different than during Jesus’ earthly ministry. When He came before, He was only sent to the Jewish people. Gentiles, that’s those of us who were not born Jews, could only receive blessings by blessing the Jews. After Pentecost, God raised up the Apostle Paul as the apostle to the Gentiles. The instructions for today’s Christian come exclusively from Paul’s epistles. Being Biblical is not enough, we must also understand where we fit into God’s plan. A dispensational reading greatly aids in understanding scripture, applying it to our lives, and recognizing that prophecy is yet to be fulfilled.
