Pastor Steven Mulkey continued the Advent series by talking about faith. He shared that faith is for everyone, faith gives us spiritual strength, and that faith pleases God. He asked to think about where we place our faith.
11 Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. 2 For by it the people of old received their commendation. 3 By faith we understand that the universe was created by the word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things that are visible.
6 And without faith it is impossible to please him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him.
39 And all these, though commended through their faith, did not receive what was promised, 40 since God had provided something better for us, that apart from us they should not be made perfect.
17 So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ.
