Aug 12 Devotion: The Faith of the Son of God!

Gal. 2:20- I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.

This is my life verse. It conveys that we’re to die out to sin and self yet live through the Spirit. The only way this is possible is defined in the verse; “by the faith of the Son of God”.

The Faith of the Son of God!

*there’s…

  1. the Source of Faith!

Rom. 10:17– So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

Heb. 11:1-3– NOW faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

2 For by it the elders obtained a good report.

3 Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.

  1. Salvation by Faith!

Eph. 2:8-9– For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:

9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.

  1. being Sustained through Faith!

Matt. 6:30-33– Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith?

31 Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?

32 (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.

33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

  1. Service by Faith!

James 2:17-18– Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone.

18 Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works.

  1. Striding in Faith!

II Cor. 5:7– For we walk by faith, not by sight:

  1. Standing by Faith!

I Cor. 16:13– Watch ye, stand fast in the faith, quit you like men, be strong.

  1. Sold out because of Faith!

Quotes:  Oswald Chambers-

“Faith is not a conscious thing, it springs from a personal relationship and is the unconscious result of believing someone.”

“The life of faith is the life of a soul who has given over every other life but the life of faith. Faith is not an action of the mind, nor of the heart, nor of the will, nor of the sentiment, it is the centering of the entire man in God.”

May we truly yield to the Spirit’s leading and walk by faith today so as to please the Savior and impact others! –Pastor Doug Foster
