This message was part of the ‘For Such a Time as This’ series, preached at Christ Church Manchester’s church in Gorton in late 2017. The full series included the following sermons:
This sermon was based on Hebrews 11:1
1Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen..
Faith in others can fail, faith in God can not
We walk by faith, not by sight, God is greater than the world, so faith in him can do more than believing the world.
Without faith it is impossible to please God
If we did not believe God could do it we would never pray. when we pray we show we have faith.
When we sit we believe the chair will not fail, we don’t worry and fret we just sit down confidently. how can we believe in God the same way? bit by bit growing in trust as we see his do more and more work in our lives. powerful trust comes from strong evidence. the more you rely on God the former your faith becomes.
Just believe God’s promise and let God be God
3500 promises in the Bible to be claimed by faith that we have been adopted by God
