Faith Will Move Mountains, Part 2 (Essential Faith Connects to God’s Saving Power)

Faith Will Move Mountains, Part 2 Essential Faith Connects to God’s Saving Power
The omnipotence of saving faith. By believing we place ourselves in connection with Almighty God, sin and guilt in us is expelled. You cannot expel sin from your own heart, but the word of Christ is omnipotent and so powerful, that as you believe in Almighty God, you will begin to see the results that are impossible to see without faith.
Life is full of changes and contrast. The best of man’s quality and character is what he is in, and how he meets these abrupt and broken changes. Faith is the knowledge of, trust in, and commitment to Jesus Christ that is required for salvation—being forgiven and set free from sin and guilt.
“Faith” in the New Testament usually refers to trusting in Christ for salvation. In return, God is faithful to us to meet our needs both for now and for eternity. Jude 3 refers to “the faith” that has been delivered to the saints. Saving faith requires more than mere mental assent to the truth of the gospel message: “You believe that God is one; you do well. Even the demons believe—and shudder!” (James 2:19 ESV)
Demons believe because they know God’s power. Knowing about God doesn’t save; repenting and trusting Jesus Christ as the Christ, the Son of the Living God leads to salvation. This initial trust, given in response to the gospel’s announcement, is the first step in an ongoing covenant relationship marked by continuing trust and faithfulness to follow Christ.
Essential faith trusts Almighty God to save us, give us the gift of His Spirit, and empower us to live the abundant life in Christ.
Faith Will Move Mountains, Part 1 (Essential Faith Must Be Connected!)

Faith Will Move Mountains, Part 1 Essential Faith Must Be Connected!
On p. 16 in my book, Essential Faith, I explained how faith is bold and unbending. Faith is an unmovable object which doesn’t give way when met by overwhelming, forceful attacks. Essential faith is immovable and undefeatable because its foundation is immutable, irrefutable truth. Jesus taught, If you have faith like a grain of mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, “Move from here to there,” and it will move, and nothing will be impossible for you.” (Mt. 17:20 ESV)
According to what I explained in Essential Faith, the weakness of most Christians is we pretend to believe in what God can do, but we don't believe in the supernatural manifestations of God.
Why is faith an absolute necessity in a believer’s daily walk with Christ? Without faith, the disciples could do nothing without faith, and the father of the lunatic child could receive nothing without faith. Why is that? Faith is more than belief; it is a direct, personal connection with the All-Powerful God. A light bulb cannot shine without being connected to electric power. A sprinkler and hose must be connected to a faucet that is turned on! Essential faith connects you with the omnipotent God of all power.
Absolute surrender of believing we can do anything on our own with complete trust in God’s power makes us immovable objects resisting every temptation and overcoming every attack of Satan or the world.
Reject your own prideful strength and connect by faith with Christ to do the impossible!
