Learning to Walk by Faith (1)

November 28, 2012

“For we walk by faith, not by sight.”                                        2Co 5:7 NAS

It’s time to “get with it,” when God tells you the same thing three separate times: “The just shall live by faith” (See Hab 2:4; Ro 1:17; Gal 3:11). This is not a suggestion for theological debate, it’s His will for your life. Clearly, God has made faith the only way to live! No alternative is offered. “Without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him” (Heb 11:6 NIV). Let’s take a moment and consider some questions arising from this life-transforming truth: (1) Who are “the just”? Paul writes, “Know that a person is not justified by observing the law, but by faith in Jesus Christ. So we, too, have put our faith in Christ Jesus that we may be justified by faith” (Gal 2:16 NIV). Justification (just-as-if-I’d-never-sinned) can’t be earned, it’s a free gift that comes by faith. If you have placed your trust in Christ then you are fully accepted in God’s eyes. How good is that? (2) What is “walking”? Paul says, “We walk by faith and not by sight.” Walking requires that you get up and start moving. You can’t just sit around aimlessly, waiting for the rapture. Walking involves: Motivation—you’re moved by a purpose. Direction—you’ve chosen a destination, a goal to reach. Motion—you’re committed to mobilizing your energy and resources in the pursuit of your God-given destination and purpose. To walk by faith you must be engaged in consistent, forward movement intended to bring you into God’s destiny for your life.
