Walking By Faith

January 28, 2019 • Duane Sheriff • 2 Corinthians 5:7, Proverbs 18:21, Jeremiah 1:11–13, Psalm 27:11–14, Philippians 4:6–8

In the message "Walking By Faith," Brother Duane addresses the practical and spiritual aspects of living a faith-filled life. He shares personal experiences, including a miraculous story about his grandson Urias, to reinforce God's power and the essence of faith. 

Faith is not a mere concept but a dynamic relationship with God that influences our daily lives. Hebrews 11:6 underlines the importance of faith in pleasing God and receiving His rewards: "Without faith, it is impossible to please Him, for he that comes to God must believe that He is, and that He's a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him." 

2 Corinthians 5:7 explains that Christians are called to walk by faith and not by sight, meaning that faith should guide our lives, not just our eyes. The power of words can activate our faith, citing Proverbs 18:21: "The power of life and death are in the tongue, and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof." 

Faith involves seeing what God sees, speaking God's truths, and standing firm even in challenging times. Brother Duane shares practical wisdom on maintaining faith during hardships, referencing Psalm 27:13-14, encouraging believers to stand strong and wait on the Lord.
