“The Just Shall Live By Faith” was the message preached and taught by Elder William Banton on Sunday at Apostolic Temple of Jesus Christ. The primary scripture reference was Romans 1:17 and we were richly reminded of how accessible and powerful faith is and what it looks like when used. The message was so engaging that I jotted down the faith nuggets I received on the front and back side of the “post-its” that were inside my pocketbook. Below are a few of my faith factor takeaways and personal thoughts for your encouragement
“God is not responsible for getting us what we need. He is responsible for making it available to us. Our faith is responsible for getting us what we need. Our needs are already provided in the heavenly storefront, it’s up to us to reach up in faith and bring it down.” – Elder Banton
Faith is an action word that is made perfect by our works. Put your God-given measure of faith to work; faith can move mountains.
Our faith can protect, empower and provide for us; and also open doors of divine possibilities if we believe and activate it in our daily lives.
“Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.” – (Hebrews 11:1, 6)
