And now … (Faith) – Gerhard Dalton
27 February 2022
1 Corinthians 13:13 (NIV) And now these three remain: faith, hope and love …
Hebrew 11:1 (AMP) Now faith is the assurance (title deed, confirmation) of things hoped for (divinely guaranteed), and the evidence of things not seen [the conviction of their reality—faith comprehends as fact what cannot be experienced by the physical senses].
Heb 11:3 (NLT) By faith we understand that the entire universe was formed at God’s command, that what we now see did not come from anything that can be seen.
Faith (Pistis) faithfulness; belief; trust; with an implication that action based on that trust may follow.
The Faith of the Centurion Luke 7:1-10
Luke 7:2-3 (NIV) There a centurion’s servant, whom his master valued highly, was sick and about to die. So when he heard about Jesus….
Luke 7:1 (NIV) When Jesus had finished saying all this to the people who were listening, he entered Capernaum.
Luke 6:45 (NIV) … For the mouth speaks what the heart is full of.
Luke 6:46-48 (NIV) “So why do you keep calling me ‘Lord, Lord!’ when you don’t do what I say? I will show you what it’s like when someone comes to me, listens to my teaching, and then follows it. It is like a person building a house who digs deep and lays the foundation on solid rock. When the floodwaters rise and break against that house, it stands firm because it is well built.
Romans 10:17 (NKJV) So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
Luke 7:7 (NIV) That is why I did not even consider myself worthy to come to you. But say the word, and my servant will be healed.
Luke 7:8 (NIV) For I myself am a man under authority, with soldiers under me. I tell this one, Go, and he goes; and that one, ‘Come,’ and he comes. I say to my servant, Do this, and he does it.
Luke 7:9 (NIV) When Jesus heard this, he was amazed at him … He said, “I tell you, I have not found such great faith even in Israel.”
2 Corinthians 4:13 (NCV) It is written in the Scriptures, “I believed, so I spoke.” Our faith is like this, too. We believe, and so we speak.
Acts 10:4b (NCV) … The angel said, “God has heard your prayers. He has seen that you give to the poor, and he remembers you.
Acts 10:47 (NKJV) And he commanded them to be baptized in the name of the Lord. ….
Colossians 2:12 (NCV) When you were baptized, you were buried with Christ, and you were raised up with him through your faith in God’s power that was shown when he raised Christ from the dead.
1 John 5:4 (AMP) For everyone born of God is victorious and overcomes the world; and this is the victory that has conquered and overcome the world—our [continuing, persistent] faith [in Jesus the Son of God].
