What Is Faith? Pt. 1: PUSH

Without faith, no one can please God, but what is faith? Is there a definition of faith? What does it mean to have faith? In today’s Church, faith seems to be lacking greatly. We don’t see the miracles promised to us in the Bible, yet Jesus said all we needed was the faith of a Mustard Seed, and we could move mountains. So why aren’t there more miracles? Join Reverend Kenny Yates as he shares the first message, PUSH, of this three-part message series seeking to reveal the answer to the question, What Is Faith?

What Is Faith?

The Definition of Faith

1 Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. For by it the people of old received their commendation. By faith we understand that the universe was created by the word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things that are visible.

Hebrews 11:1-3

Faith of a Mustard Seed

19 Then the disciples came to Jesus privately and said, “Why could we not cast it out?” 20 He said to them, “Because of your little faith. For truly, I say to you, if you have faith like a grain of mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move, and nothing will be impossible for you.”

Matthew 17:19-21

Promised Miracles in The Bible

The lack of faith is the reason we no longer see miracles. Faith is the root of our growth in Christ.

16 Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned. 17 And these signs will accompany those who believe: in my name they will cast out demons; they will speak in new tongues; 18 they will pick up serpents with their hands; and if they drink any deadly poison, it will not hurt them; they will lay their hands on the sick, and they will recove

Mark 16:16-18

12 Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever believes in me will also do the works that I do; and greater works than these will he do, because I am going to the Father. 13 Whatever you ask in my name, this I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. 14 If you ask me anything in my name, I will do it.

John 14:12-14

He said to them, “It is not for you to know times or seasons that the Father has fixed by His own authority. But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” And when He had said these things, as they were looking on, He was lifted up, and a cloud took Him out of their sight.

Acts 1:7-9

Does He who supplies the Spirit to you and works miracles among you do so by works of the law, or by hearing with faith— just as Abraham “believed God, and it was counted to him as righteousness”?

Galatians 3:5-6
