'Faith' in the Bible
"Now then, if you have been acting in good faith and integrity by making a king out of Abimelech, if you have treated Jerubbaal and his household appropriately by acting toward him as he deserved
So if you've acted in good faith and integrity toward Jerubbaal and his household today, then you're welcome to Abimelech, and he's welcome to you"
Meanwhile, Ebed's son Gaal arrived with his relatives and crossed over into Shechem. The "lords" of Shechem put their faith in him.
Furthermore, they required no accounting from the men into whose hand they had paid the money to do the work, because the workers acted in good faith.
The army got up early the next morning and headed out into the wilderness of Tekoa. Jehoshaphat stood up and addressed them. "Listen to me, you inhabitants of Judah and Jerusalem," he said. "Have faith in the LORD your God and you'll be established! Have faith in his prophets and you'll succeed!"
Open your gates, so the righteous nation that safeguards its faith may enter.
"Listen to this, house of Jacob, you who are called by the name of Israel, and who have come forth from Judah's loins; you who swear oaths in the name of the LORD and invoke the God of Israel but not in truth, nor in good faith.
"Notice their arrogance they have no inward uprightness but the righteous will live by their faith.
Now if that is the way God clothes the grass in the field, which is alive today and thrown into an oven tomorrow, won't he clothe you much better you who have little faith?
When Jesus heard this, he was amazed and told those who were following him, "I tell all of you with certainty, not even in Israel have I found this kind of faith!
He asked them, "Why are you afraid, you who have little faith?" Then he got up and rebuked the winds and the sea, and there was a great calm.
All at once some people brought him a paralyzed man lying on a stretcher. When Jesus saw their faith, he told the paralyzed man, "Be courageous, son! Your sins are forgiven."
When Jesus turned and saw her, he said, "Be courageous, daughter! Your faith has made you well." And from that very hour the woman was well.
Then he touched their eyes and said, "According to your faith, let it be done for you!"
At once Jesus reached out his hand, caught him, and asked him, "You who have so little faith, why did you doubt?"
Then Jesus answered her, "Lady, your faith is great! What you want is granted." That very hour her daughter was healed.
Knowing this, Jesus asked them, "You who have little faith, why are you discussing among yourselves the fact that you don't have any bread?
He told them, "Because of your lack of faith. I tell all of you with certainty, if you have faith like a grain of mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, "Move from here to there,' and it will move, and nothing will be impossible for you.
Jesus answered them, "I tell all of you with certainty, if you have faith and do not doubt, not only will you be able to do what has been done to the fig tree, but you will also say to this mountain, "Be removed and thrown into the sea,' and it will happen.
When Jesus saw their faith, he told the paralyzed man, "Son, your sins are forgiven."
He asked them, "Why are you such cowards? Don't you have any faith yet?"
He told her, "Daughter, your faith has made you well. Go in peace and be healed from your illness."
Jesus told him, "Go. Your faith has made you well." At once the man could see again, and he began to follow Jesus down the road.
Jesus told his disciples, "Have faith in God!
When Jesus saw their faith, he said, "Mister, your sins are forgiven."
When Jesus heard this, he was amazed at him. Turning to the crowd that was following him, he said, "I tell you, not even in Israel have I found this kind of faith!"
But Jesus told the woman, "Your faith has saved you. Go in peace."
Then he asked the disciples, "Where's your faith?" Frightened and amazed, they asked one another, "Who is this man? He commands even the winds and the water, and they obey him!"
Then he told her, "Daughter, your faith has made you well. Go in peace."
Now if that's the way God clothes the grass in the field, which is alive today and thrown into an oven tomorrow, how much more will he clothe you you who have little faith?
Then the apostles told the Lord, "Give us more faith!"
The Lord replied, "If you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you could say to this mulberry tree, "Be uprooted and planted in the sea,' and it would obey you!
Then he told the man, "Get up, and go home! Your faith has made you well."
I tell you, he will give them justice quickly. But when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on earth?"
So Jesus told him, "See again! Your faith has made you well."
but I have prayed for you that your own faith may not fail. When you have come back, you must strengthen your brothers."
It is his name that is, by faith in his name that has healed this man whom you see and know. Yes, the faith that comes through Jesus has given him this perfect health in the presence of all of you.
This suggestion pleased the whole group. So they chose Stephen, a man full of faith and the Holy Spirit, Philip, Prochorus, Nicanor, Timon, Parmenas, and Nicolaus, a gentile convert to Judaism from Antioch.
So the word of God continued to spread, and the number of disciples in Jerusalem continued to grow rapidly. Even a large number of priests became obedient to the faith.
because he was a good man, full of the Holy Spirit and faith. And so a large number of people was brought to the Lord.
But Elymas the occult practitioner (that is the meaning of his name) continued to oppose them and tried to turn the proconsul away from the faith.
He was listening to Paul as he spoke. Paul watched him closely, and when he saw that he had faith to be healed,
strengthening the disciples and encouraging them to continue in the faith. "We must endure many hardships," they said, "to get into the kingdom of God."
So the churches continued to be strengthened in the faith and to increase in numbers every day.
I testified to both Jews and Greeks about repentance to God and faith in our Lord Jesus.
Some days later, Felix arrived with his wife Drusilla, who was Jewish. He sent for Paul and listened to him talk about faith in Jesus the Messiah.
You will help them understand and turn them from darkness to light and from Satan's control to God, so that their sins will be forgiven and they will receive a share among those who are sanctified by faith in me.'
First of all, I thank my God through Jesus the Messiah for all of you, because the news about your faith is being reported throughout the world.
that is, that we may be mutually encouraged by each other's faith, both yours and mine.
For in the gospel God's righteousness is being revealed from faith to faith, as it is written, "The righteous will live by faith."
whom God offered as a place where atonement by the Messiah's blood would occur through faith. He did this to demonstrate his righteousness, because he had waited patiently to deal with sins committed in the past.
What, then, is there to boast about? That has been eliminated. On what principle? On that of actions? No, but on the principle of faith.
For we maintain that a person is justified by faith apart from the actions prescribed by the Law.
since there is only one God who will justify the circumcised on the basis of faith and the uncircumcised by that same faith.
Do we, then, abolish the Law by this faith? Of course not! Instead, we uphold the Law.
However, to someone who does not work, but simply believes in the one who justifies the ungodly, his faith is credited as righteousness.
Now does this blessedness come to the circumcised alone, or also to the uncircumcised? For we say, "Abraham's faith was credited to him as righteousness."
Afterward he received the mark of circumcision as a seal of the righteousness that he had by faith while he was still uncircumcised. Therefore, he is the ancestor of all who believe while uncircumcised, in order that righteousness may be credited to them.
He is also the ancestor of the circumcised those who are not only circumcised, but who also walk in the footsteps of the faith that our father Abraham had before he was circumcised.
For the promise that he would inherit the world did not come to Abraham or to his descendants through the Law, but through the righteousness produced by faith.
For if those who were given the Law are the heirs, then faith is useless and the promise is worthless,
Therefore, the promise is based on faith, so that it may be a matter of grace and may be guaranteed for all of Abraham's descendants not only for those who were given the Law, but also for those who share the faith of Abraham, who is the father of us all.
As it is written, "I have made you the father of many nations." Abraham acted in faith when he stood in the presence of God, who gives life to the dead and calls into existence things that don't yet exist.
His faith did not weaken when he thought about his own body (which was already as good as dead now that he was about a hundred years old) or about Sarah's inability to have children,
nor did he doubt God's promise out of a lack of faith. Instead, his faith became stronger and he gave glory to God,
but also for us. Our faith will be regarded in the same way, if we believe in the one who raised Jesus our Lord from the dead.
Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus the Messiah.
Through him we have also obtained access by faith into this grace by which we have been established, and we boast because of our hope in God's glory.
What can we say, then? Gentiles, who were not pursuing righteousness, have attained righteousness, a righteousness that comes through faith.
Why not? Because they did not pursue it on the basis of faith, but as if it were based on achievements. They stumbled over the stone that causes people to stumble.
But the righteousness that comes from faith says, "Do not say in your heart, "Who will go up to heaven?' (that is, to bring the Messiah down),
But what does it say? "The message is near you. It is in your mouth and in your heart." This is the message about faith that we are proclaiming:
Consequently, faith results from listening, and listening results through the word of the Messiah.
That's right! They were broken off because of their unbelief, but you remain only because of faith. Do not be arrogant, but be afraid!
For I want to let you know about this secret, brothers, so that you will not claim to be wiser than you are: Stubbornness has come to part of Israel until the full number of the gentiles comes to faith.
For by the grace given to me I ask every one of you not to think of yourself more highly than you should think, rather to think of yourself with sober judgment on the measure of faith that God has assigned each of you.
We have different gifts based on the grace that was given to us. So if your gift is prophecy, use your gift in proportion to your faith.
Accept anyone who is weak in faith, but not for the purpose of arguing over differences of opinion.
As for the faith you do have, have it as your own conviction before God. How blessed is the person who has no reason to condemn himself because of what he approves!
But the person who has doubts is condemned if he eats, because he does not act in faith; and anything that is not done in faith is sin.
but now has been made known through the prophets to all the gentiles, in keeping with the decree of the eternal God to bring them to the obedience that springs from faith
so that your faith would not be based on human wisdom but on God's power.
to another faith by the same Spirit; to another gifts of healing by that one Spirit;
If I have the gift of prophecy and can understand all secrets and every form of knowledge, and if I have absolute faith so as to move mountains but have no love, I am nothing.
Right now three things remain: faith, hope, and love. But the greatest of these is love.
and by which you are also being saved if you hold firmly to the message I proclaimed to you unless, of course, your faith was worthless.
and if the Messiah has not been raised, then our message means nothing and your faith means nothing.
and if the Messiah has not been raised, your faith is worthless and you are still imprisoned by your sins.
Remain alert. Keep standing firm in your faith. Keep on being courageous and strong.
It is not that we are trying to rule over your faith, but rather to work with you for your joy, because you have been standing firm in the faith.
Now since we have the same spirit of faith in keeping with this Scripture: "I believed, and so I spoke," we also believe and therefore speak.
For we live by faith, not by sight.
Indeed, the more your faith, speech, knowledge, enthusiasm, and love for us increase, the more we want you to be rich in this work of kindness.
We are not boasting about work done by others that cannot be evaluated. On the contrary, we cherish the hope that your faith may continue to grow and enlarge our sphere of action among you until it overflows.
Keep examining yourselves to see whether you are continuing in the faith. Test yourselves! You know, don't you, that Jesus the Messiah lives in you? Could it be that you are failing the test?
The only thing they kept hearing was this: "The man who used to persecute us is now proclaiming the faith he once tried to destroy!"
You see, then, that those who have faith are Abraham's real descendants.
Because the Scripture saw ahead of time that God would justify the gentiles by faith, it announced the gospel to Abraham beforehand when it said, "Through you all nations will be blessed."
Now it is obvious that no one is justified in the sight of God by the Law, because "The righteous will live by faith."
But the Law has nothing to do with faith. Instead, "The person who keeps the commandments will have life in them."
