What does it mean to be people of faith?

Faith is one of those words that gets used so much that it can mean so many different things. For some it may mean that you believe in a particular religion or god, for others you may have “faith” in your own abilities, for some it may just be the sense that everything will work out. It is because of this that it is important for us to understand what the Bible says faith really is, because how many of us know that its not important what I think or feel about the topic, its what the Lord has to say that matters.

So what does the Bible say faith is?

This Bible defines faith in four definite ways.  They are…

  • A specific belief system.
  • A belief that goes beyond what is known.
  • A conviction that drives us into action.
  • A lifestyle of trusting God.

Ultimately “faith” for the Christian is trusting in God more than you trust your fears and limitations.
