FAITH

How did I get the faith I have today?
I studied, I asked, and I prayed
But how did I get the faith I have today?
The Bible assured me that was the way

It started out as a tiny seed
A taste of Your love had been revealed
I knew in my heart that I wanted more
I opened Your Word and begin to explore

The way to Faith was through Your Word
The message is clear, you have to hear
Faith was to know Jesus, that’s what I heard
His love, His life, faith became real

Jesus is the perfecter of my faith
Faith I now truly embrace

How did I get the faith I have today?
The Bible led me all of the way

COMMENT ON FAITH

Faith is the most vital part of being or becoming a Christian.
It is a seed that is implanted in our souls when we read the Bible.

In Hebrews it says
“without faith it is impossible to please God”

When I opened the Bible for the first time,
the last thing I had was faith.

One day I was back in the U.S. reading and seeking.
Still with the tapes and the books from the cult
that were given to me with the Bible. It was
confusing reading the truth and a lie at the same time.

I gave up, threw the Bible on the floor.
Before I got up I asked God
“Are You really there”?

I wasn’t expecting anything. My heart leaped.
God knew I needed that.

As I read the Bible the shock of what I had been missing
for so many years dawned on me. I also realized that
receiving that faith was a gift from God.

The way I received that Bible was a miracle.
God sent someone to the jungles of Belize.
The grace of God.

Ephesians 2:8-9
For it is by grace you have been saved,
through faith—and this is not from yourselves,
it is the gift of God—not by works, so that no one can boast.
