The importance of faith. This lesson goal is to give you a better understanding of the importance of your faith in Jesus.  Hebrews Chapter 11 is known as the faith chapter of the bible.  We cannot be a soul winner without faith in God. Secondly, we must believe and have faith in what we are doing.  Here is what the book of Hebrews says about faith:

The Christian faith is the experience of living in a dynamic and new personal relationship with God through the transforming and indwelling power of Jesus in your body and life.
Faith is defined as belief with strong conviction; firm belief in something for which there may be no tangible proof; complete trust, confidence, reliance, or devotion.  Faith is the opposite of doubt.


How Does the Bible Define Faith?


Faith is the single-most essential element in the Christian life.
Let’s look at passages in the Bible that speak of faith:
Hebrews 11:6 states, “And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.” (NIV)
Faith, then, is key to pleasing God.  We need faith first to come to God—to believe he exists and to trust him for our salvation.  Then, our continued faith—the kind that causes us to seek him daily—offers the promise of a dynamic, rewarding walk with God.

Faith and the Christian Life 

The bible gives this description of faith in Hebrews 11:1: “Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.” (NIV)

Hebrews chapter 11 is often called the “Faith Hall of Fame.” In this notable passage, the writer of Hebrews introduces an impressive list of heroic characters from the Old Testament.  These men and women and their stories stand out to encourage and challenge our faith. Some of the heroes are well-known Bible personalities, while others remain anonymous. Like the twelve disciples, they were ordinary people, just like you and me.  They became heroes of faith by overcoming their doubts and putting their trust in God.

God Is the Source of Faith

However, we can’t take credit for our faith.  Scripture explains that the source of faith is God: “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith–and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God–not by works, so that no one can boast.” (Ephesians 2:8-9, NIV)

Mustard Seed Faith

When the disciples were unable to heal a man with a demon, they asked Jesus. “Why couldn’t we drive it out?’ He replied, ‘Because you have so little faith.  Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you” (Matthew 17:19-20, NIV)
