Twisting Faith

This modern era of believers are putting more confidence in faith as a verb than faith as a noun. In the Greek, the word for faith, “pistis” is both a noun and a verb. More emphasis has been put on the verb usage that the noun. We want to see faith in action rather have confidence in the assurance of faith. The proper idea is that we have “Faith.” That is we have confidence, assurance, hope in someone or something we can trust in (I Cor 15:58). The real test of Faith is not just in what you know about scripture, but how much of scripture knows you. The faithful have to know that healings, deliverance, miracles, and power are not always the word of the day. Sometime in spite of it all, patience, hope, and love have to sustain us even when it seems there is no light at the end of a long tunnel.
