Mentor's Bible Study #3 - Faith Toward God

LESSON #3  - FAITH TOWARD GOD

Mark 11:22

We are to have faith in God and His Word. Faith means that we trust Him in every area of our life. But as a new Christian it takes time for our faith in God to grow.

Romans 10:17

How do we get more faith toward God. We must hear the Word of God over and over again. As we do, it produces faith in us. Whatever God's Word says He will do, if I believe what He says, I will see it come about sooner or later in my life.

John 20:26-29 

This is the first of two kinds of faith toward God. We call this the Thomas kind of faith. Notice Thomas wouldn't believe until he had proof. We as Christians are only blessed when having not seen proof as yet, we believe what God has said.

Romans 4:17-21

These verses describe the second kind of faith. We call this the Abraham kind of faith. This is how a Christian is to believe. Abraham believed in God's Word even when all the circumstances in his life said otherwise.

Hebrews 11:1

This a very good definition of faith. The Beck Translation says "Faith is being sure of the things we hope for..."

Hebrews 11:1

"...the evidence of things not seen." The Amplified Bible says, "...being the proof of things [we] do not see and the conviction of their reality-faith perceiving as real what is not revealed to the senses." You see, the world wants you to have all the proof in before you decide. But God wants you to trust Him, when the only evidence you have is your faith in God and His Word.

Galatians 3:11

Four times the Bible uses the phrase "the just shall live by faith." According to Scripture, you have been made just before God. This is commanding you to live by faith. But how? Spend time in the Word of God, and hear it taught and preached. It will produce faith in you to trust God.

2 Corinthians 5:7 

"For we walk by faith, not by sight." We have seen that we are to live by faith. Now this verse says we are to walk by faith. What does that mean? That means that as we take one step at a time that we are to take that step with our faith in God. We aren't to take the leap of faith, just a step at a time. Start your walk of faith today!
