RCCG SOD Year Four: The Faith Of A Disciple

RCCG SOD Year Four: The Faith Of A Disciple

 

THE FAITH OF A DISCIPLE (Part 1)

 

According to John 6:47, the Bible says that he who believes in Jesus has eternal life.

 

If you believe as a disciple that you have eternal life, it means you have faith. Ephesians 1:3 makes it clear to us that we are already blessed with every spiritual blessing and faith is a spiritual blessing, so we have it because we are already blessed. In 2 Corinthians 9:8, 11, 15 the Bible makes it clear that faith is a grace and we have it abundantly because God gave it to us. The question now is; why are some people still praying for faith when it has already been given to us?

 

          Romans 12:3 says that God has dealt to every man a measure of faith. Every disciple has at least a measure. This is good news. It then follows that all things are possible to the disciple (Mark 9:23) because the Bible says here that all things are possible unto him that believeth.

Considering Matthew 17:14-20, according to our Lord

 

Jesus Christ, faith as small as a mustard seed can move mountains. In that case, it is sure that your measure of faith no matter how small, as long as it is as big or bigger than a mustard seed, can move mountains and move in a miraculous ministry. You have enough faith to be creative.

 

Why Then Do We Not Operate In Faith?

There are three major reasons:

 

  1. Ignorance

          Some disciples don’t even know that they have faith, According to    Hosea 4:6, the Bible says:

        “my people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.”

 

  1. Many don’t know that they are endowed with the faith of the Almighty God.
  2. Some people say faith can’t be touched or seen. They say it is intangible, so they can’t know whether or not they have faith. They forget that the most crucial things in their life are unseen, for example;    the air we breathe.
  3. Many don’t believe that God has enough integrity to do what He says He will do. Yet God says in Jeremiah 1:12 that He watches over His      word to perform it. Isaiah 55:10-11 says that His word will not return to Him void. It will not come back to Him until it has achieved what He        sent it to achieve.. In Luke 1:37, the Bible says:

          “With God nothing shall be impossible.”

 

In the original scripts it says there is no word of God that lacks the power to do what God sends it to do.” In other words, as soon as God speaks, His words are loaded with power to fulfil the word.

 

          In Luke 1: 38, when Mary said, ‘be it unto me according to your word, what she was saying is ‘I believe that your word can do what you say it will do, I believe that the word you have spoken has enough power to do what you have said, so don’t withdraw your word from me’.

 

The Nature of the Word of God

 

Jesus gave us a great insight into the nature of the word of God.

(1)     He said the words of God are like angels, you can summon them and           they will function.

(2)     The words are life and spirit. They are living spirits. They have power        and energy.

(3)     They are highly intelligent.

(4)     They are quick and powerful and can enter anywhere, even where    angels cannot enter.

          For example, no angel can enter into somebody without permission but    the word of God can enter. Somebody can be made glad or sorrowful      by sending correct or incorrect words to him. So you can rely on the          word of God.

 

In Hebrew 4:11-12; the Bible says,

“Let us therefore labour to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief. For the word of God is quick and powerful and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.”

The word of God is full of life and power. It is a spirit being. It pierces and enters by force. It is there to back you up. Rest on the integrity of the word. Give no room for unbelief because the word of God is:

(a)      Quick- full of life and very fast

(b)     Powerful- full of power

(c)      Sharper than any two edged sword – highly intelligent.

(d)     It pierces to enter by force. This word enters anywhere whether we   allow it or not.

(e)      It divides asunder – it creates a path for itself, it cannot be stopped from entering where it wants.

 

According to Luke 1:39-45 the word can enter the most secret part of your life, it can even touch a baby in the womb. The words of God are not dead, they are living. We can trust in them, we can put our faith in them. If we call them to attention, they will work.

 

According to Psalm 107:20 some words of God act as doctors and medicine to heal. Some go out as warriors to deliver the captives.
