“What does it say? ‘The Word is near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart,’ that is, the message concerning FAITH that we proclaim: If you declare with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and BELIEVE in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your FAITH and are saved.” Romans 10:7-10 – Pg. 1758
“Lord, I Lift Your Name On High” Hymn 347
MESSAGE Gary Wingo
The LEAP of Genuine FAITH!
“You Are My King (Amazing Love)” Hymn 305
Benediction Gary Wingo
“FAITH is the word that describes the direction our feet start moving when we find that we are LOVED. FAITH is stepping out into the unknown with nothing to guide us [that we can see]
*CHILD-LIKE FAITH that Defeats WORRY!
“Jesus called the little children to Him and said, ‘Let the little children come to Me, and do not hinder them, for the Kingdom of god belongs to such as these. Truly I tell you, anyone who will not receive the Kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.”
Luke 18:16-17 – Pg. 1631
“Jesus said: ‘Therefore I tell you, do not WORRY about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear…Can anyone of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?”
Matthew 6:25, 27 – Pg. 1509
*CONSTRUCTIVE FAITH that STRENGTHENS & BUILDS
“So, just as you received Jesus Christ as Lord, continue to live your lives in Him, rooted and built up in Him, strengthened in the FAITH as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness. See to it that NO ONE takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the elemental spiritual forces of this world rather than on Christ.” Colossians 2:6-8 – Pg. 1830
*COURAGEOUS FAITH that TRUSTS in Life’s Storms
“The fundamental fact of existence is that this TRUST in God, this FAITH, is the firm foundation under everything that makes life worth living. It’s our handle on what we can’t see. The act of FAITH is what distinguished our ancestors, set them above the crowd. By FAITH, we see the world called into existence by God’s Word, what we see created by what we don’t see…”
Hebrews 11:1-3 – The Message
“For if anyone is in Christ he becomes a new person altogether—the past is finished and gone, everything has become fresh and new.”
II Corinthians 5:17-18 – PH
