"How shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard?" (Rom.10:14)

A scientist looks at his data, believes it, and then moves on. There is no emotional attachment to the fact that the earth moves around the sun or how photosynthesis works. He will adjust his thinking when new data appears. For the Christian, faith is belief, but it is more than belief... It also entails trust and obedience. The believer is not at all tentative about the confession that Jesus is the Son of God. The Christian gives not only his mind to God, but also his heart. Faith in Christ requires both one's heart and will, as an obedient response is dyed into the fabric of that faith... If obedience fails, faith has not measured up to the faith that saves. Water is a wonderful, life sustaining substance, but it has a problem... As a liquid, it has no exact form of its own and needs a vessel to transport it from place to place to perform its function. Belief without faith and obedience, is like that water without some type of container to transport it... That response of faith is more than some emotional turmoil or a moment in time when the sinner allows Jesus to enter his heart... It is an all-embracing way of life that will allow for repentance and change. Our Bibles will allow us to read about how to live by faith...

Have a great start to your week.... Why not begin it with a RAK or two... Love mark Phil.4:11
