Faith Toward God

Listen to the Audio Version Here☞

Hebrews 6:1 (KJV) Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God

Clara was born again, but she lived in a society that was deeply humanistic. This society existed as if there was no God. God was not a factor in the governance or ideals of that society.

Clara did not know that society was trying to condition faith out of her heart. She felt she really did not need God in her daily life because "man can fix his own problems" ( forgetting that "there is more to life than food and raiment"). But because she was a believer who now had the understanding the Holy Spirit gives, she saw that in spite of how physically affluent her society was, there was deep moral and spiritual poverty. Most of the young people lived depressed, miserable lives, and suicide was a widespread practice in that society. She saw firsthand how foolish it was for a society to exist without the consciousness of God.

Faith towards God makes a believer live daily in the consciousness of God's commanding presence. This is the real reason why we don't continue in sin. The more conscious a believer is of God's presence, the more difficult it would be for him to sin.

After the faith that brought us under the Lordship of Christ and led to our repentance, it is important that we live our lives in the consciousness of the commanding presence of Almighty God. We should also live with the understanding that God is not just present but he is King and controller of all things. Nothing happens without His knowledge, and He causes all things to work together for the good of those who love Him and who are called according to His purpose(see Romans 8:28). This is the reason why we are to do all things in the name of the Lord (Colossians 3:17).

Go into today remembering that faith in God means living your life with the consciousness of God's presence and sovereignty. Those who live and make their choices as if God does not exist do not have faith, no matter how religious they are.

Prayer: Lord, let every moment of my life be dominated by the consciousness of Your presence. Amen.
