Mixing the word with faith is a profitable activity! Hebrews 4:2 says: “For indeed the gospel was preached to us as well as to them; but the word which they heard did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in those who heard it.”
When Is the Word mixed together with faith?
- When we gaze intently upon the perfect law of liberty
James 1:25 “But he who looks into the perfect law of liberty and continues in it, and is not a forgetful hearer but a doer of the work, this one will be blessed in what he does.”
- When I refuse to listen to contradiction
1 Timothy 6:20: “O Timothy! Guard what was committed to your trust, avoiding the profane and idle babblings and contradictions of what is falsely called knowledge.”
- When I refuse to question or tamper with God’s Word,
2 Corinthians 4:2: “We refuse to practice cunning or to tamper with God’s Word, but by the open statement of the truth we would commend ourselves to everyone’s conscience….”
- When we are convinced God is with us no matter what.
Romans 8:38-39: “For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
The Word mixes together with faith through my constant focusing on Christ. If you want to see God in action, believe the Word.
