Biblical Faith: What It Is and How to Have It

Sermon Overview
Scripture Passage: Romans 10:11-17

It is not by fame, feelings, fortune, friends, or fate, but by our faith that we measure our accomplishments. Our belief is our greatest spiritual asset and richest currency. On the contrary, unbelief is our greatest stumbling block.

This is why there is an immediate urgency to grow in a solid and exciting faith in God. Romans 10 reveals the intricacies of biblical faith, what it is, and how to have it.

“For the Scripture says, ‘Whosoever believes on Him will not be put to shame…’” (v. 11)

First, faith must be placed in the right object to be real; when we rely on the wrong things, it can be dangerous to our spiritual health. Adrian Rogers says, “Weak faith in the right object is better than misplaced faith in the wrong object. We do not rely on positive thinking, or even on faith itself. True biblical faith is placed in Jesus Christ, alone.

Once we understand the reality of biblical faith, we can see the root of it, which is the Word of God.

“How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard” (v. 14)?

In order to spiritually grow, we must hear from God; we cannot know the will of God by guessing at it. It cannot be generated; it is given, as Ephesians 2:8-9 says, “For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: not of works, lest anyone should boast.”

When God speaks to us through His Word and through Jesus Christ, we will see the results of our faith, which is the will of God.

Adrian Rogers says, “The will of God is not something that you must do; it is something you get to do.” The purpose of faith is to get God’s will done on earth. He is sovereign and remains in control at all times. What He says He will accomplish. We have the beautiful opportunity to take part in His will, through faith.

Apply it to your life
How are you going to release your faith today? True faith does more than merely believe; it translates into action. When you pray and ask God what to do, and how to accomplish His will for your life today, trust and obey Him.
