Description

NOW FAITH IS THE SUBSTANCE OF THINGS HOPED FOR, THE EVIDENCE
OF THINGS NOT YET SEEN (Hebrews 11:1 NKJ).

Faith is absolutely, essential for living in Christ. The familiar James admonition that faith without works is dead affirms the reality that faith is more than creeds, words, and a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Faith works hard at the good works called for by Christ and the totality of the Scriptures.

Essential faith is also a living faith: Believing that the risen Jesus is the Son of God, yet not to imitate His character, not to follow His precepts, not to conform to His commands, is no more acceptable faith than to speak kind words to a neighbor, and not assist his wants is acceptable and satisfactory love.

What is essential faith? Faith, if it has not works, is dead, being alone. Your journey through this book will expand, deepen, and challenge your faith! Start reading…

“Essentials of Faith indeed! I attest to Dr Shamenda’s stubborn and ever-increasing faith. Even when circumstances and situations looked impossible and hopeless, your faith in God was amazing. As a young brother, David mentored me on how to love and have faith in God, just as you have displayed in this book.” —Daniel Shamenda Mazabuka, Zambia
“Although we lost contact for some time, when I reconnected with him, I was not surprised that his unwavering consistency had resulted in his becoming a powerful apostolic leader and an academically astute student and teacher of the word of God. As the reader steps through this chronicle of Dr Shamenda’s faith journey, and his personal testimony of the faithfulness of God over the decades that he has walked with Him, he or she will not fail to be inspired, blessed, and challenged by this tremendous record of the personal experiences of a great and uncommon man of God.   “What a privilege it is for me to be able to say something about this book which I believe will be a source of great blessing to those who read. My prayer is for Dr. Shamenda to continue with distinction his exemplary and very passionate testimony of zeal, passion, and consistency in the Lord. Of course, as always, God has proven Himself to be faithful through it all!” —Bishop Robert Wasterfall, Founder of River of Life Ministries Zimbabwe, Harare
“Dr. David Shamenda narrates his story and reveals the faith lessons he has learned in his and his family’s journey from Africa to America and the world. This is not a book about creeds or doctrine, theology, or spirituality. It’s about total surrender and complete trust in God not only for salvation in Christ Jesus but also for living the life of Christ in service, witness, and sacrifice. I dare you to read this book and use it as a practical examination of your faith and how you need to change and grow in your trust walk with God. I have been impacted by Shamenda’s words and action…you will be too.” —Dr. Larry Keefauver, Bestselling Author and International Teacher, www.doctorlarry.org
“Essential Faith is an apropos title for my father’s book. I have seen firsthand my father follow God unwaveringly in good times and bad. His spiritual discipline of early morning prayer was so constant in my life and that of my siblings that we struggled to sleep when we didn’t hear it. I know all will be blessed by these amazing stories of God’s grace and the practical Biblical principles that have shaped his journey from the mission hospital to the mission fields around the globe.” —Elijah Shamenda, Overflow Church, Benton Harbor, Michigan
