VESPERS AT THE END OF THE SABBATH: FAITH - Opinion OR Transaction?!




I Have Faith In The Lord Jesus Christ!

What "Faith!?!"
Faith Is Just An Opinion!

Not So My Friend!
My Faith Is No Opinion!
My Faith IS A Transaction!
Between Jesus And Me!
We Have A Covenant!
A Quid Pro Quo, If You Will!

He Says He Can
AND
I Believe That He Will
AND
In The Day
Of The Glorious Consummation
All My Eternity
Will Be
With Glorious Blessings
Filled!

In The Now
If I Request By Prayer
A Blessing
Which I Do Not Immediately Receive
Or
The Answer Is A Plain No
I Do End Up Crying
Hot Tears On My Shirt Sleeve!

I Accept That My Father Knows Best
AND
I Continue Walking
Trusting
Believing
That Jesus Is The Only Way
AND
I Hold On
In His Blessed Faith
On The Holy Word
AND
In Child-like Faith
I Keep Petitioning
AND
Praying
To Know And Do His Will!





I Know
Who It Is
That I Believe In!
I Believe
In The Promises Of God!
I Trust
In The Word Of My Creator
Savior
AND
Redeemer
AND
I Will Not Permit
The Lack Of Receipt
Of
Mere Corporeal Things
Make Me A Card-Carrying Member
Of
The Team Unbelieving!

I Love The Lord
AND
I Have Faith In The Lord
AND
Because Of My Love
For My Lord
My Faith Goes Out To Work!

You Don't Say!

I Do Say!
You Should Give It A Try!
Ask The Lord!
You Can Reason With Him!
He Listens
AND
He Truly Cares
AND
To Your Honest Query
You Can Be Sure
That He Will Answer
For He Really Does Listen 
To Our Every Earnest Prayer!

By The Way ...

Whatever You Do
Don't Go To God
Doubting
That He Is
Or
That He Can!
In Such A Circumstance
He Will Not Have Anything For You!

Remember ...

He That Comes To God
Must Believe That
He IS
AKA
That He IS Real
AND
A Rewarder Of Those
Who Diligently
Seek Him!

Faith Is Not A Joke
A Yoke
Or
A Toke!
Faith Is A Fair Transaction
Requiring
Of All Parties
Equal
AND
Agreed Upon
Suitably Weighted
Achievable Actions
Within Each Party's Power!

God Infinitely Blesses Me!
AND
I
Being Human
Finitely
Honor Worship
Obey And Praise Him!
God Made The Offer
AND
I Accepted
By Faith
The Conditions
AND
We Now Have 
A Life Unto Life
Binding Relationship!

Thanks For Enlightening Me!
I Really Thought That Faith Was An Abstraction
That Really Did Not Matter!
Now I Know The Truth!

You're Welcome!
When You Know The Truth
Then You Are Free!

Faith Is Real

And

Real Faith Really Matters!

Where Does Your Faith Point?
