I want to start this from scratch by presenting a question. How can faith in Jesus Christ come from anything that is me acting apart from God? Everyday I live my life "knowing" that Jesus Christ is Lord. That is faith is it not? I don't have to think about it. I don't have to work it up from within. I have absolutely no control over the fact that I know Jesus Christ is God, my God. So how is this faith credited to me as though it is something I am generating from myself? As if i get up each morning and decide whether or not I am going to believe in Jesus today? It is just there all the time. I don't look for it. I don't say today your going to have faith steaver. It appears to me that I have no control over it. It is part of my life. I cannot stop believing in Jesus anymore than I can stop believing in me! Why do i hear "ye must continue to believe, ye must continue to believe"? How can I not? Does anybody else feel like they could ever stop "their" faith in Jesus? How? How can I stop believing that which I know is true?? God Bless!
