Jesus said: I have come into the world as a light, so that no one who believes in me should stay in darkness.  (John 12:46)





"faith comes by hearing and hearing the words of God"



Faith =  1)believing  2)trusting  3)opposite of doubt and unbelief

John 1:17-18 niv

17 For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. 


John 7:38-39 niv

38 Whoever believes in me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them.”

39 By this he meant the Spirit, whom those who believed in him were later to receive. Up to that time the Spirit had not been given, since Jesus had not yet been glorified.

John 14:12-14 niv

12 Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father. 13 And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. 14 You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.

John 20:24-31 niv

Jesus Appears to Thomas

24 Now Thomas (also known as Didymus), one of the Twelve, was not with the disciples when Jesus came. 25 So the other disciples told him, “We have seen the Lord!”

But he said to them, “Unless I see the nail marks in his hands and put my finger where the nails were, and put my hand into his side, I will not believe.”

26 A week later his disciples were in the house again, and Thomas was with them. Though the doors were locked, Jesus came and stood among them and said, “Peace be with you!” 27 Then he said to Thomas, “Put your finger here; see my hands. Reach out your hand and put it into my side. Stop doubting and believe.”

28 Thomas said to him, “My Lord and my God!”

29 Then Jesus told him, “Because you have seen me, you have believed; blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.”

The Purpose of John’s Gospel

30 Jesus performed many other signs in the presence of his disciples, which are not recorded in this book. 31 But these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name.

Galatians 5:4-6 niv

4 You who are trying to be justified by the law have been alienated from Christ; you have fallen away from grace. 5 For through the Spirit we eagerly await by faith the righteousness for which we hope. 6 For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision has any value. The only thing that counts is faith expressing itself through love.

Hebrews 11:1 niv

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

Romans 10:17 niv
So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

Romans 10:23 niv
God has given to every man a measure of faith.

Romans 1:17 niv
For therein the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.

Faith =  1)believing  2)trusting  3)opposite of doubt and unbelief

2 Corinthians 5:7 niv
For we walk by faith and not by sight.

Godly Faith & True Faith =  Trusting God no matter what you see

Ephesians 6:16 niv
Faith is a spiritual shield for those who are Saved.
Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye
shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the


1 Corinthians 12:9 niv
Faith is a gift of the Holy Spirit.

Galatians 5:22-23 niv
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering (patience), gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance (self-control): against such there is no law.

Note:  Faith is believing and trusting. Faith in relationships increases as you get to know a people.  The more you get to know them, the more you trust them. It is the same with God.  The more you get to know Him, the more you trust Him.
