Belief and...Faith!
What's the difference?
Belief and...Faith!

Someone Loves YOU,
His name is Jesus!
Belief is a State of Being

Belief is the conviction that something is true or not.
Belief is a State of Being

Joel's prophecy included Salvation and Judgment.
Belief is a State of Being

the cloud of judgement doesn't leave us until we have made peace with God.

the choice of not believing Jesus or His words is a serious one.
Why Belief is NOT Faith

James 2:19-24
1. Even the demons believe
2. "Faith Alone" is only used in Scripture here. James says that Faith alone DOESN'T save us.
3. Action demonstrates faith.
Faith is the State of Doing

Grace if God's part. Faith is our part.
How is Faith and Works Different?

Romans and Galatians

Save by Faith and not "works"
The "works" Paul refers to are the works of the law


How is Faith and Works Different?

Works of faith, are no based on merit, but obedience.

Even the sacrificial system taught this.
How is Faith and Works Different?

Romans 4:1-8: Two test Cases

Abraham (before the Law)
David (under the Law)

Both saved by Grace, through obedient faith.
Belief AND Faith is the State of or Salvation


Belief AND Faith is the State of our Salvation
Belief AND Faith is the State of our Salvation

If we remove any of these parts of faith, we make the salvation process incomplete.
Belief AND Faith is the State of our Salvation

Faithful obedience also is seen in:
1. Our forgiving others
2. Our loving others
3. Our humbling ourselves
4. Growing in Love, Peace, Joy, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness, and Self-Control
