As I did a search to see what God’s word has to say about faith, I discovered to my joy, that I reached a deeper understanding. By reading all the new testament scriptures about faith collectively, I was able to see the whole picture at once. This truly blessed me, and I hope it deepens my faith walk. I’m sharing this thinking that it may bless you as well.
What is faith?
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. [Hebrews 11:1]
How do we get faith?
So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. [Rom. 10:17]
Why do we need faith?
Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law. [Rom. 3:28]
Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. [Rom. 5:1]
How will our faith be used?
For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, the just shall live by faith. [Rom. 1:17] ( For we walk by faith, not by sight:) [2 Cor. 5:7]
But will you know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead? [James 2:20]
that the trying of your faith works patience. [James 1:3]
And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; [James 5:15]
So therefor we must…
Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto you are also called, [1 Tim. 6:12]
Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;) [Heb.10:23]
For whatever is born of God overcomes the world: and this is the victory that overcomes the world, even our faith. [ I John 5:4] {for we have} One Lord, one faith, one baptism, [Eph. 4:5]
