Faith : why do you need to have faith pt3

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)
6. To understand the things of God.

By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible.( Hebrews 11:3). If you are having a hard time understanding the things written in the Word of God, chances are that you are not reading by faith. Reading the bible out of curiosity will not make you understand the things written because to understand the Word of God you need the Holy Spirit. So Philip ran to him, and heard him reading the prophet Isaiah, and said, “Do you understand what you are reading?”And he said, “How can I, unless someone guides me?” And he asked Philip to come up and sit with him.( Act 8:30-31)

This is the reason we have to preach the gospel so that unbelievers can receive Christ because if they just had the Bible they’ll just have more questions upon questions. How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher?( Romans 10:14). This makes it crucial for all Christians to play a role in evangelism, even if you don’t preach there is still a role you must play. Apostle Johnson Suleman once said that ” in the kingdom of God there are three armies, the preaching army, the praying army and the paying army. If you cannot go and preach pay for someone to go and if you can’t pay then pray for those who are going.” I personally believe that a person is supposed to be functioning in at least two of those armies because prayer is something we are supposed to do as believers. Hence it’s either your pray for yourself and those going to preach with you or you pay for someone to go and also pray for those who are going to preach.

Spreading the Gospel to all of Mankind is the duty of all Christians, we cannot force them to receive Christ but we must make sure that they heard of Him
