Everyone has faith in something or someone. Every person lives his or her life based on some sort of belief system. But what does the Bible say about faith?
According to “Mounce’s Complete Expository Dictionary of Old and New Testament Words,” the Greek word most often translated as “faith” in the New Testament means “belief, trust, confidence.” But our faith needs an object, something or Someone in which we believe, trust, and have confidence in. Since only God can save, He is the object of a Christian’s faith.
In his book “Systematic Theology,”Wayne Grudem defines saving faith like this: “Saving faith is trust in Jesus Christ as a living person for forgiveness of sins and for eternal life in God.”
But what does biblical faith look like in our lives today? Let’s explore seven key things the Bible teaches us about our faith in God.
