Faith Is Here to Stay 06 May Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ.
Some years ago, in the midst of all the moves of the Spirit, God began to awaken people to the subject of faith. My first thought was, Boy, here we go again. This is another wave. People called it that. They called it the Faith Movement. Some people still do. They talk about faith like its a theological fad passing through the Christian community. But Ill tell you something. After living the faith life for more than 30 years, Ive become convinced that faith is not just a movement. Its not simply a spiritual phase sweeping through the Body of Christ. Its much more than that. The awakening of faith weve seen over the past years has come as a result of the call of God. He is calling people from all denominations to move into a life of power. He is revealing to us a way to live victoriouslyday in and day out, in good times and bad times. And isnt that what we want? Isnt that what we need? He is teaching us that faith in His Word works, even when nothing else works. He is calling us to live by faith, not just temporarily, but as Ephesians 4:13 says, Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ. If God is calling you to live a life of faith, and youve been tiptoeing around it…wondering if the movement thing is real or not…jump in now! Faith is not a movement. Faith is how God operates and lives…its how He wants you to live. Faith will open the door to the kingdom of God for you. And once youre in, it will keep you theresafe and healed and prosperous. Faith in the Word will keep you armed and dangerous to the devil. It will keep you free from sin and enable you to grow in the fruit of the spirit. It will enable you to please God. Faith is a permanent way of life for the people of God. Its a way that works when nothing else does. Faith is here to stay1 Samuel 25-26; 1 Corinthians 11I develop and attain oneness in faith with the believers. I am perfect and complete in Christ. Ephesians 4:13, The Amplified Bible
