"Sowing the Word of God, so all might be saved."
Faith. (Passive and Active.)
A. Passive Faith:
1) reliance in God, His fidelity to His promise(s). "For what if some did not believe? shall their unbelief make the faith of God without effect?" (Rom 3:3.KJV) In other words, even if someone doesn't believe in what God says He will do, it doesn't nullify God's promise.
2) faith in the sense of creed. One's belief in the truth or body of truth, which is trusted, or which justifies trust. For example, " What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works?...Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone." (James 2:14-17. KJV)
B. Active Faith:
1) Active faith is reliance or trust; especially reliance upon God to be trustworthy. This assurance enables the believer to treat the future as the present and the invisible as the seen. For example, "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen." (Hebrews 11:1. KJV)
Dear Lord, please allow me to trust and to believe in your promises each day. My ACTIVE faith upon you is strong because of your trustworthiness. "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen." (Hebrews 11:1. KJV) Because I totally believe in your Word, I face all: prospects, expectations and hindrances; with assurance, certainty and God-reliance. AMEN.
