Having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ ~ Rom. 5:1
Faith is rationally impossible where there is nothing to believe. Faith must have an object. The object of Christian faith is Christ. Faith means more than agreeing to the claims of Christ. It involves the will, it is volitional. Also, faith demands action! If we actually believe, then we will live, according to James 2:26 “Faith without works is dead.” It means the acknowledgement of sin and a turning to Christ. We don’t know Him through the five senses, but we know God through the sixth sense that He has given everyone, which is the ability to believe.
Believing is as real as any experience, yet many are looking for something more. Perhaps some feeling that will bring them a physical thrill, while others look for some spectacular manifestation. The bible says that a man is “Justified by Faith” and not a feeling.
Another object of our faith is the word of God. Let’s believe what it says (the will) and act upon it allowing God to bring our faith the fruit of the bible (word).
