Rhapsody Of Realities Tuesday April 25th 2017 [By Pastor Chris Oyakilome]

Topic: Use Your Faith

Text:For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man
that is among you, not to think of himself more highly
than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as
God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith
(Romans 12:3).

 

Message: Acts called 14 Lystra, tells us and that Paul noticed was apreaching certain man in awho city
was crippled from his mothers womb: And there sat a
certain man at Lystra, impotent in his feet, being a cripple
from his mothers womb, who never had walked. The same
heard Paul speak: who stedfastly beholding him, and
perceiving that he had faith to be healed, Said with a loud
voice, Stand upright on thy feet. And he leaped and walked
(Acts 14:8-10).

When the man heard the Gospel from Paul, it imparted
faith to him, but faith alone didnt do him good. He was still
crippled, even though he had faith. His faith was so palpable
that Paul noticed it; he perceived that the man had faith to be
healed.
Its the same predicament that many are in today in the
body of Christ; they have faith, yet theyre snowed-under by
the adversities of life, living as victims. Their problem is that
theyre not using their faith. Faith is like currency; you have
to use it. Its like money in your account, wallet or in your
pocket; it wont do anything for you just because you have it;
you must put it to use.
The Bible says, …Faith, if it hath not works, is dead,
being alone (James 2:17). That means faith without
corresponding actions; faith thats not used, is dead. Imagine
if the crippled man had argued and hesitated when Paul told
him to stand up; he would have neutralised his own faith. But
the moment he acted on the Word, his faith was activated
and a miracle ensued.
The issue oftentimes isnt that Gods people dont have
faith; every Christian has faith. The problem is that many
arent using their faith. Faith must be active and not passive.
Use your faith today.
PRAYER
Dear Father, I thank you for
imparting faith to my spirit
through the Word. I use my faith
today by my corresponding
actions and verbal expressions, in
line with your infallible and
eternal Word. Thus, I live above
the adversary and all adversities
of life, in Jesus Name. Amen.
