Faith is waiting patiently for something to happen and not wishing, faith is believing and taking steps by steps based on God's word and God works. We don't know what tomorrow holds but God knows, we see the world around us; and we know there's a creator. Example if we see a building you wouldn't think it's an accident product of evolution of course there's a designer an architech and engineer and just like
human being is not a product of evolution, there's a designer - God.
God created everything according to His kind, we came from God it's important to have a relationship with our creator by faith.
2 Corinthians 5:7 For we walk by Faith, not by sight.
Romans 8:24 For we were saved in this hope, but hope that is seen is not hope; for why does one still hope for what he sees?
25 But if we hope for what we do not see, we eagerly wait for it with perseverance.
To have relationship with God you can't come by traditions but by faith through Jesus, anyone who says they believe God but not to Jesus then you can't have relationship to God; there's no other way except through Jesus - Believe in our heart.
If we believe that Jesus is coming back any moment then we are going to live everyday to please God.
the signs of the times and the end of the Age Matthew 24:3
Live to please God
Hebrews 11:6 But without Faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.
If we live for pleasure of this world... all are temporary but if we live for God we will have everlasting happiness.
Faith without works is dead. The evidence of faith are:
- Prayer = eagerly seeking God. And God will secretly reward you.
- Kind and Loving to your neighbor.
By faith Noah build the ark for 120 years and he rejected the world.
Set your mind at above not on things of the world. Live your life for Heaven not on Earth.
Philippians 3:20 For our citizenship is in heaven, from which we also eagerly wait for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ
Don't look back at the world when they are having fun. Remember our world is temporary, don't seek temporary happiness but everlasting joy.
