Faith In God Is More Than An Insurance Policy

It is not enough to know things about God. It is important that we declare to people all around us that they must come to know God Himself.
Our faith in God is more than the provision of an eternal life insurance policy. Some Christians in their testimonies seem to view God as a lifeboat always coming to their rescue. Or perhaps they portray Him as a kind of ladder enabling them to get out of a burning building.
We dare not miss the point here. Our God takes pleasure in His believing children coming to Him with genuine faith, knowing that He is the rewarder of all who diligently seek Him. . .
Faith in God is to be demonstrated, not defined. Just as God’s church demonstrates Christian love, the demonstration of godly, humble faith is God’s ideal for His church. . . God wants His people, including the ministers, to demonstrate all of the outworking of faith in their daily lives and practices.
We should be busy demonstrating the fragrance of God’s love and grace in our daily walk. It is not proper to magnify faith if in doing so we forget that our confidence as believers is not in the power of faith but in the person and work of our Savior, Jesus Christ.
