“A LIVING FAITH!” CONCLUSION!

Read John 6:1-13 again:

THERE ARE THREE KINDS OF FAITH:

A PESSIMISTIC FAITH – Philippians in verses 5-7.

  • All he could see was money and human resources. Only what was available.
  • He does not see the Power of God.
  • He professes but not possession.
  • He stresses only the impossibility of the problem and prays safely.

AN OPTOMISTIC FAITH – Andrew verses 8-9.

But still, a questioning faith. He searched for and bought food with what he had; but he questioned the supply.

  • He loves and is committed to the Lord.
  • He lays what he has before the Lord.
  • He looks at his meager recourses.

The problem with this kind of faith is that it leads us to    complaining and being anxious, grumbling and griping over quality.

A POSITIVE FAITH – Jesus in v. 10.

This was an unwavering faith and some great lessons for us:

  • He took what He had and thanked God for it.
  • He gave what He had.
  • He used the disciples to help those in need.

This is the same faith as the one that got you saved – WOW!

A LIVING FAITH – DO YOU HAVE IT?
