Here we are again this Lord’s Day morning, back on the subject of faith! Ah, but I say, Brother/Sister, can we ever tire of receiving what we need? As food is to the stomach and petrol is to the engine, so faith is to the spiritual life of the believer, the vehicle through which he gains unlimited access to the marvellous and never-ending treasure stores of grace, without which he cannot live! Can we ever tire of speaking about faith? Can we ever exhaust its riches? There’s not a day, not even a waking hour that you and I are not called upon to exercise it! Faith is indispensable to the child of God; “...by it the elders obtained a good report” (Heb. 11:2) and by it, we hope also to obtain likewise in our generation, proving the God of our Fathers to be the same yesterday, today and forever!
A strong exhortation sounds forth, calling the children of God to glorify the Lord in taking Him at His word. Even in the face of apparent setback and disappointment, God is saying, be not afraid, only believe!
