I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?
Luke 18:8 (KJV)
Jesus was certain and specific about so many events that would take place on the face of the earth before or around the time of His second return. Yet one area He seemed uncertain about is if He would “find faith on the earth”. This questions brings to fore the importance of faith to the Christian faith. Hebrews 11:6 tells us that without faith it is practically impossible to please God, thereby making faith the basis for pleasing God. It is through faith that we have our prayers answered, according to James 1:5-6, and Paul said we are justified by faith and as believers we are to walk by faith. (Rom 3:38 and 2 Cor 5:7). Faith is the central theme of the Christian Faith, it is through it we please God and enjoy all the kingdom benefits that Christ dead has purchased for us.
It is time the priority of Jesus becomes our concern, in the time where so much is happening all at once, it is good to pause and ponder, if there is evidence of genuine faith in my Christian walk and work, are we just playing religion and using the name of Jesus for our selfish gains or are we truly living lives that are pleasing to Him. May God find us living and exhibiting the faith that pleases Him at His eminent return.
My declaration and confession: I am walking and acting in faith, i wont lose heart and drift away from prayer. I live and demonstrate faith in all I do. Jesus will find faith in me whenever He comes.
Ignite Thought: Faith is the central theme of the Christian Faith, it is through it we please God and enjoy all the kingdom benefits.
