Naked Faith #1
And there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are naked and open to the eyes of Him to whom we must give account, (Hebrews 4:13).
Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, will He really find faith on the earth (Luke 18:8)?
What is Faith? People often answer with something like this: Believing that God is our Father, Jesus paid for our sins with His blood, and the Holy Spirit guides us. However, the devil also believes that, so is he then a Christian? Of course not. Believing in the Trinity and their varied attributes is simply that: our belief system.
28 So why do you worry about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; 29 and yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 30 Now if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? 31 Therefore do not worry, saying, 'What shall we eat?' or 'What shall we drink?' or 'What shall we wear?' 32 For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. 33 But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you (Matthew 6:27–33)
Matthew starts the study of faith in the New Testament by establishing that God does and will take care of His own. Trusting God to see to our upkeep is the beginning of faith.
