Faith to Believe

 

Faith To Believe
 
The second in the series, The Journey Book Series recounts Pamela Benner's own personal journey and relationship with God as she shares her experience of loss, disappointment and discovery with a heart of sincerity and truth, incorporating her favorite scriptures and Bible stories in such a way that it will inspire faith in your own journey. This book is filled with examples of believing faith: Mary, Joseph, Jairus, the Gentile woman, the poor widow, the good Samaritan, the Roman officer, Joshua and Gideon. Each of them made their own journey of faith to realize the dream that God placed in their hearts.
 
Theme:
 
Now someone may argue, “Some people have faith; others have good deeds.” I say, “I can’t see your faith if you don’t have good deeds, but I will show you my faith through my good deeds.”
 
Do you still think it’s enough just to believe that there is one God? Well, even the demons believe this, and they tremble in terror! Fool! When will you ever learn that faith that does not result in good deeds is useless?
 
Don’t you remember that our ancestor Abraham was declared right with God because of what he did when he offered his son Isaac on the altar? You see, he was trusting God so much that he was willing to do whatever God told him to do. His faith was made complete by what he did—by his actions. And so it happened just as the Scriptures say: “Abraham believed God, so God declared him to be righteous.” He was even called “the friend of God.” So you see, we are made right with God by what we do, not by faith alone. (James 2:18- 24 NLT)
