2 Corinthians 5:7
For we walk by faith, not by sight:
Being children of God or to become members of God's family requires a walk of faith as it is impossible to please God without faith. We believe in faith that first there is a God of the universe who is supreme to all other gods, second that Jesus Christ is God's Son who died for the sins of the world, and third that God the Holy Spirit lives in every believer.
That being said, faith is the key to our salvation as faith is our belief in the Almighty God. Just as faith was attributed to the Old Testaments patriarchs' righteousness as Christ came after their death; so is the same with all faithful who is looking back on the cross. Hebrews 11:1 gives a profound definition of faith as it speaks to believing the unseen as evidence or seeing things through spiritual eyes.
Faith incorporates trust into the equation as one must trust God for who He says He is and will do what He says He will do. God is faithful to His promises and have proven His trustworthiness. It is one's faith that enables him or her to endure trials and tribulations while trusting God that His grace is sufficient. It is one's faith that enables the person to rely on the indwelling Holy Spirit for guidance.
Let's close by saying that one's faith equates to salvation and spending eternity with Christ our Savior. What faith?
