To live by faith is not just a important action, but seemingly the only way to live as a believer. We do not have the luxury of shrinking back if things look impossible. We need to stay the course, even when it seems like things do not work out the way we have hoped.
Here is a great verse just about that in Hebrews 10:38-39
but my righteous one shall live by faith,
and if he shrinks back,
my soul has no pleasure in him.”
But we are not of those who shrink back and are destroyed, but of those who have faith and preserve their souls.
Faith preserves your soul like unto salvation. Let’s not get complicated! If you believe that Christ saved you by grace, you will be saved. If you stop believing that and try to find other ways of salvation, God will not be pleased.
Even more importantly, YOU ARE NOT PART OF THOSE WHO SHRINK BACK!
Yu step up to the faith plate! The tougher it gets, the more you believe!
