Keeping the Faith

Ephesians 6:16 (KJV)

“Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery arts of the wicked.

Faith is firm.  It blocks all the negatives the world will shoot at you.  It is a conviction, an assurance of the truthfulness of the Word, and a reliance on the promises from God.  Faith is balanced on the constancy of the Truth.

There are few Christians who could be convinced that they are not going to Heaven.  Most have heard the preaching about the path there, and have it locked firmly in their hearts.  No amount of words, written – spoken – or other wise formed – can take that belief away.

True faith, about or of anything, has this kind of solid foundation.  It’s not something you can sit back and expect to get one day (or even three times) out of the week.  It requires the continuous feeding of scripture that backs up and supports the Faith you are building to stand on.

Although Faith is given when we become Christians, it must be nurtured.  Find the promises of God  – beyond just the basics of salvation – and put it in your eyes, your ears, and your heart.  Eventually it will be so firmly established that nothing in this world will be able to shake it.
