How Do You Show Faith?

“Now the just shall live by faith; but if anyone draws back, My soul has no pleasure in him.”

Hebrews 10:38


Ponder This

Faith is the heart’s response to the character of God. When your eye is right, it responds to light. When your ear is right, it responds to sound. When your heart is right, it responds to God and that response is called faith. That’s the reason the Bible says, “Beware, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief in departing from the living God” (Hebrews 3:12). Unbelief never comes out of the head. Unbelief comes out of the heart. A lack of faith shows what is in our hearts. Faith is the dynamic of spiritual worship. Faith honors God and God honors faith. Are you honoring Him through faith?

  • How have you experienced the reality of faith as a response to the character of God?
  • What are some ways your life might show a lack of faith, no matter what you say you believe?

Practice This

Make a list of ways your faith is manifest in your life. Make another list of ways your life shows a lack of faith. What needs to change? Take those things before God in prayer.
