Faith Believing and Pleasing God

Jesus wondered, “When the Son of Man comes, will He really find faith on the earth?” (Luke 18:8). How can we grow in the kind of faith He’s looking for?

Today, millions are totally self-absorbed in their own lives, and their faith in God is greatly diminished.

What is faith? In Romans 4:20-21, the apostle Paul describes Abraham’s faith: “He did not waver at the promise of God through unbelief, but was strengthened in faith, giving glory to God, and being fully convinced that what He had promised He was also able to perform.”

Faith is not just wishful thinking, but it is a deep conviction and belief that God’s words are true, and that He is able to bring about His promises. Our faith is made strong in Jesus Christ.

The Bible speaks of many other faithful people. They were persecuted, yet held fast to their beliefs, and have “obtained a good testimony through faith” (Hebrews 11:39) and pleased God. In fact, “without faith it is impossible to please Him” (verse 6 ).

We also need to have this type of faith. How can we grow in living faith? Learn more about this type of faith in the related articles.
