Faith for Messy Lives: Faith Works (Hebrews 11:7)Pastor Tim Holwerda, October 7, 2018
Part of the Faith for Messy Lives series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
What else does FAITH do? Faith works!
"By faith Noah...built an ark." Noah's faith gave the warning about a future flood "substance", making him "sure" and "certain" so that he acted, in the face of all contrary present reality. What do you do that can only be explained by faith?
1. Faith believes God. Not just believe in God, not just believe about God. Noah could not see the destruction coming, but he was certain.
2. Faith works, bringing obedience. Noah did what God commanded, acting on what he believed from God. We always act according to what we really believe.
3. Faith has a reward. God gives us righteousness as a reward for faith.
Ask God for this kind of faith.
