What is Faith?
According to the Bible, God’s word, “Faith is the assured expectation of what is hoped for, the evident demonstration of realities that are not seen. “ (Hebrews 11:1)
What do Jehovah’s Witnesses think about Faith
Jehovah’s Witnesses think about Faith, what we can read in the Bible.
Faith involves a certain expectation of God’s promised blessings
In God’s word, the Bible, we can read about faith:
“Moreover, without faith it is impossible to please God well, for whoever approaches God must believe that he is and that he becomes the rewarder of those earnestly seeking him.” (The Bible, Hebrews 11:6) Faith is not complete, unless we are firmly convinced, that our creator Jehovah God will reward those who earnestly seek him.
How Faith becomes stronger
Faith becomes stronger, the more we love Jehovah God. Not only faith that God exists. But that God becomes the rewarder of those earnestly seeking him. Because becoming a rewarder is an integral part of Jehovah God. And of what Jehovah does.
Faith can help us to face the challenges in our life
Today we face many challenges in life. Real Faith can make us more powerful than our challenges. Real Faith can help us to cope with even difficult problems. Challenges or problems, which we cannot solve by ourselves. Because with real faith Jehovah God (Almighty God Jehovah) can become our mighty helper. Read for example the following Bible Scriptures.
Matthew 17:20; 21:21, 22; Luke 17:5, 6; Mark 11:23
(Matthew 17:20) He said to them: “Because of your little faith. For truly I say to you, if you have faith the size of a mustard grain, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move, and nothing will be impossible for you.”
(Matthew 21:21, 22) In answer Jesus said to them: “Truly I say to you, if you have faith and do not doubt, not only will you do what I did to the fig tree, but even if you say to this mountain, ‘Be lifted up and thrown into the sea,’ it will happen. 22 And all the things you ask in prayer, having faith, you will receive.”
(Luke 17:5, 6) Now the apostles said to the Lord: “Give us more faith.” 6 Then the Lord said: “If you had faith the size of a mustard grain, you would say to this black mulberry tree, ‘Be uprooted and planted in the sea!’ and it would obey you.
(Mark 11:23) Truly I say to you that whoever tells this mountain, ‘Be lifted up and thrown into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart but has faith that what he says is going to happen, he will have it happen.
Jehovah rewards those who earnestly seek him (Watchtower 2016, December pages 24-28)
