Ladies, we know it is not the size of our faith but how we move our feet that will build our Ferocious Faith in GOD! Are we walking, running, or standing still? #runningbyfaith, #walkingbyfaith, #standingbyfaith, #sisterwithfaith
Not long ago, faith was something of a mystery to me. The more I think about it, the more I want to know about faith in God. I am excited that my faith in God becomes more apparent each time I study Scripture. A key Bible passage for this post comes from the Book of Ephesians.
8 For you are saved by grace through faith, and this is not from yourselves; it is God’s gift— 9 not from works, so that no one can boast. 10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared ahead of time for us to do.
Christian Standard Bible
In our previous post, we shared this article, “What is the definition of faith?” The author highlighted two essential characteristics to assist us with understanding the meaning of faith. We learned that faith consists of intellectual assent and trust. Today, we will explore the origin of our faith in the article “Where does faith come from?”
Is it not evident that faith comes from God? Perhaps it is, but as we ponder the answer to where faith comes from, we will learn so much more. If we read the entire article, we will better understand the origin and purpose of our faith and God’s amazing grace!
So here is the short answer to the question at hand:
Question: “Where does faith come from?”
Answer: Faith is the avenue or the instrument God uses to bring salvation to His people. God gives faith because of His grace and mercy, because He loves us (Ephesians 4—5). Faith comes from God in the form of a gift (Ephesians 2:8).
