WHAT FAITH IS NOT 2

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

Hebrews 11:1

Your understanding of faith determines your result in life.  You cannot see results beyond your level of understanding.  As men are different in their level of faith so are their results different in life.  No one can develop another person’s faith on his behalf, everyone must work on their faith.  “… but the just shall live by his faith.” (Habakkuk…

For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.

Romans 1:17

Just as it is important to know what faith is, it is also important to know what faith is not.  Your understanding of faith affects your command of outstanding blessings from God.
