Everyone Has Faith
What Kind Is Your Faith?
Deuteronomy 32:20 And He said: 'I will hide My face from them, I will see what
their end will be, For they are a perverse generation, Children in whom is no
Habakkuk 2:4 "Behold the proud, His soul is not upright in him; But the just
shall live by his faith.
As we study the Bible, we learn about faith.
Sometimes it is what we learn that gives us this faith.
Romans 10:17 “So faith comes from hearing, and hearing the word of Christ”.
Romans 10:17 “So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of
There are two types of faith to consider.
The type of faith that has been revealed by God, and for which we are to obey.
Jude 3 “…contend earnestly for the faith, which was once for all delivered
to the saints…”
Romans 1:5 “…to bring about the obedience of faith…”
Romans 16:26 “…the commandment of the eternal God, has been made known
to all the nations, leading to obedience of faith;”
An Individuals personal conviction.
Or even lack of conviction is a subjective faith.
This faith is to be derived from several sources.
Learning the Bible.
Learning from the experience of others.
Types Of Faith
Reading the Bible declares several types of faith that various individuals exhibited.
Some of these are to be rejected as the Bible declares them to be rejected of
Some of these need to be put into practice in our personal lives.
Let’s look at some types of faith.
A Dead Faith
While not dead physically, our faith has lost any viability in our own lives.
James 2:17 “Even so faith, if it has no works, is dead, being by itself.”
The context reveals that our works offer proof of our faith, and our faith causes
us to respond with good works for God.
James 2:26 “For just as the body without the spirit is dead, so also faith
without works is dead.”
A Weak Faith
Some are not as strong as others.
We might question things
Or this might hinder us from doing good.
Romans 14:1 “Now accept the one who is weak in faith…”
Romans 14:2 “One man has faith that he may eat all things but he who is
weak eats vegetables only.”
This is where we know that we are supposed to trust in God, but our reality suggest
that such will not happen.
Luke 12:28 …oh ye of little faith”.
Matthew 8:26 But He said to them, "Why are you fearful, O you of little faith?"
Then He arose and rebuked the winds and the sea, and there was a great calm.”
A Strong Faith
This makes one confident that they are doing the Lord’s will that He has
revealed to us.
A Great Faith
When someone has a strong faith it is also to be viewed as a great faith.
Luke 7:9 “When Jesus heard these things, he marveled at him, and turned
him about, and said unto the people that followed him, I say unto you, I have
not found so great faith, no, not in Israel.”
It is having the confidence that what God wills will be done.
It is impossible to not have any faith.
One may not believe in God, thus having no biblical type of faith.
But one has to have a certain amount of trust in everyday things.
Jesus spoke of some has having no faith.
Mark 4:40 “And he said unto them, Why are ye so fearful? How is it that
ye have no faith?”
That just means they had no faith in God.
These are just a few types of faith.
There are many passages of scripture that describe the things that faith does
Faith is a trust that you place yourself into the hands of God for His guidance
Hebrews 11:6 “For without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who
comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a reward of those who diligently
Have you got the right kind of faith?
