"Wherefore take unto you the whole armor of
God, that ye may be able to withstand in
the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
Stand, therefore, having your loins girt
about with truth, and having on the
breastplate of righteousness;
And your feet shod with the preparation
of the gospel of peace;
Above all, taking the shield of faith,
wherewith ye shall be able to quench all
the fiery darts of the wicked.
And take the helmet of salvation, and the
sword of the Spirit, which is the word
of God: Praying always with all prayer
and supplication in the Spirit, and
watching thereunto with all perseverance
and supplication for all saints."

What is faith?


The New World Dictionary of the
American Language gives this definition:
unquestioning belief that does not require
proof or evidence.
Hebrews 11:1-3 of the
King James version of the Holy Bible puts
it this way: "Now faith is the substance
of things hoped for, the evidence of
things not seen."

Why Faith?


Faith Is A Weapon for Spiritual Warfare

"Above all, taking the shield of faith,
wherewith ye shall be able to quench
all the fiery darts of the wicked."
Ephesians 6:16

"But let us, who are of the day, be
sober, putting on the breastplate of
faith and love; and for an helmet,
the hope of salvation."
1 Thessalonians 5:8

"May they give you the confidence to
fight well in the Lord's battles.
Cling tightly to your faith in Christ,
and always keep your conscience clear.
For some people have deliberately
violated their consciences; as a result,
their faith has been shipwrecked."
1 Timothy 1:18b-19 NLT

"Fight the good fight of faith, lay
hold on eternal life, whereunto thou
art also called, and hast professed a
good profession before many witnesses."
1 Timothy 6:12

"And since we have a great High Priest
who rules over God's people,
let us go right into the presence of
God, with true hearts fully trusting Him.
For our evil consciences have been sprinkled
with Christ's blood to make us clean, and
our bodies have been washed with pure water.
Without wavering, let us hold tightly to
the hope we say we have, for God can be
trusted to keep His promise."
Hebrews 10:21-23 NLT

Without Faith There Is No Christianity

"Through faith we understand that the
worlds were framed by the Word of God, so
that things which are seen were not made
of things which do appear.
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."
Hebrews 11:3, 6

Prayer Without Faith Is Useless

"If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of
God, that giveth to all men liberally, and
upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.
But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering:
for he that wavereth is like a wave of the
sea driven with the wind and tossed."
James 1:5-6

Faith And Love Are Entwined

"And this is His commandment, That we
should believe on the name of His Son Jesus
Christ, and love one another, as He gave
us commandment."
1 John 3:23

Faith Assures Our Success

"For every child of God defeats this evil
world by trusting Christ to give the victory.
And the ones who win this battle against
the world are the ones who believe that
Jesus is the Son of God."
1 John 5:4-5 NLT

"Believe in the Lord your God, so shall
ye be established; believe his prophets,
so shall ye prosper."
2 Chronicles 20:20b

Faith Is A Duty

"Then said they unto Him, What shall we do,
that we might work the works of God?
Jesus answered and said unto them, This is
the the work of God, that ye believe
on Him whom He hath sent."
John 6:28-29
