True faith is evidenced by a change in the way we act towards others
True faith, dependence/reliance/trust, in God reveals itself in our actions, our thought life, and our priorities.
We will love God with all our hearts and we will love others as we love ourselves ( (Matt. 22:37-39).
Almost everyone believes that faith involves feelings. But physical feelings merely come from the human senses and have nothing whatsoever to do
with what God promises—or faith!
Human beings accept knowledge that they have received through the five senses—seeing, hearing, smelling, touching and tasting. These senses all
involve physical information—physical knowledge. The mind receives and processes this information in order to draw conclusions about
circumstances, things and events taking place around it. Faith is spiritual, not physical. It is a confident assurance, which comes from the Spirit of God in the mind of a converted human being.
While ‘faith’ surely includes the element of ‘belief’, they are not one and the same. Certainly one must believe that something, or someone, exists
before it is possible to put one’s faith in that person or thing.“Belief” can be simply a passive mental acceptance which amounts to nothing when it
comes to how it affects our life. Simply to say “I believe in God” means very little if it is merely coming from the lips and not from the heart
To put one’s ‘faith’ in something, or someone, means that one is putting his or her trust in that person or thing.
Faith is built on love and trust
