Last time we were looking at reasons why we need to have faith, so let’s continue where we left of.
Why we need to have faith?
4. To receive from God.
But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.( Hebrews 11:6). One of the major reasons why many pray but don’t receive an answer from God is because they don’t pray in faith but pray because they are almost out of hope and trying to see if God can help them not because they believe or know that God can help them.
5. To be spiritual.
But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name:( John 1:12),the children of a spirit are spirits and since God is a Spirit that is to be received by faith then it takes faith to be spiritual.
God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.”( John 4:24). All the spiritual exercises we do we need to do by faith for it to yield results. Those who haven’t received the gift of speaking in tongues despite being prayed for is usually because they don’t have faith. Even so for those whose spiritual lives have not developed even though they have been in church for more than ten years it is because they don’t have faith to walk according to the Spirit.
