The Importance of Faith

Hebrews 11:6 NKJV
But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.

It is impossible to please God without faith.

We cannot experience a living relationship with the God of the Bible without faith.
We must believe that He exists.
He does not fit in a test tube.
He cannot be observed under a microscope.
We must believe that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.
God wants to be sought.
God wants to be believed.
God wants to be obeyed.

The Importance of Faith

We cannot be saved apart from faith.
John 3:36 NKJV
He who believes in the Son has everlasting life; and he who does not believe the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him.”
We cannot experience victory over this world apart from faith.
1 John 5:4 NKJV

We cannot expect to receive answers to prayer apart from faith.
James 1:6–8 NKJV
But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind. For let not that man suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.
We cannot be justified in the sight of the Lord apart from faith.
Galatians 2:16 NKJV
knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law but by faith in Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Christ Jesus, that we might be justified by faith in Christ and not by the works of the law; for by the works of the law no flesh shall be justified.
We cannot experience peace in our relationship with God apart from faith.
Romans 5:1 NKJV
Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ,
We cannot experience joy in our relationship with God apart from faith.
1 Peter 1:8 NKJV
whom having not seen you love. Though now you do not see Him, yet believing, you rejoice with joy inexpressible and full of glory,
Christ cannot live in our hearts apart from faith.
Ephesians 3:17 NKJV
that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love,
We cannot live out the Christian life apart from faith.
Galatians 2:20 NKJV
I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.
We cannot experience the presence and power of the Holy Spirit apart from faith.
Galatians 3:2–3 NKJV
This only I want to learn from you: Did you receive the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?— Are you so foolish? Having begun in the Spirit, are you now being made perfect by the flesh?
We cannot experience true liberty in Christ apart from faith
Romans 14:22–23 NKJV
Do you have faith? Have it to yourself before God. Happy is he who does not condemn himself in what he approves. But he who doubts is condemned if he eats, because he does not eat from faith; for whatever is not from faith is sin.

Why is faith important?

Faith always honors God, and God always honors faith.
