Where Is Your Faith?

Faith will be tested

Reading today from my wonder book by Martin lloyd- Jones called Spiritual Depression; its causes and cures.

To have faith in God and Jesus means that your faith will be tested, for it to have any value. Like a pearl in an oyster, like gold burnished in the fire, like a diamond in the rough.

Where is your faith?  Martin Lloyd -Jones

First of all looking at the whole question of faith let me say a word what I might call the trial of faith. Scripture is full of this idea of the trial of ones faith. Take the 11th chapter of the Epistle to Hebrews. That is in a sense nothing but a great exposition of this theme of the trial of faith. Every one of those men was tried. (Abraham, Moses, Noah, Jacob)

“The trial of your faith which is more precious than of gold that perisheth though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ.”

Storms and trials are allowed by God. Our faith will be tried and James goes so far as to say; “Count it all joy when you fall into diverse difficulties. He permits the wind to blow and the billows to roll.”

“Unto you is given on the behalf of Christ, not only to believe on Him but also to suffer for His sake.” Phillipians 1;29

“In the world you will have trouble but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.” John 16:33

When all things seem against us; to drive us to despair

We know one gate is open; one ear will hear our prayer.

We must never allow ourselves to be agitated and disturbed whatever the circumstances because to do so implies a lack of faith, a lack of trust, a lack of confidence in our blessed Lord and God.

The Social Media Revolution to Save Asia Bibi – Abolish Blasphemy Laws

Help save an innocent mothers life; please read

Michael A. Sherlock (Author)

72 hours remain until Asia Bibi’s final appeal to overcome her death sentence for blasphemy in Pakistan. It is imperative that people act now! You can help save this innocent woman by simply posting on social media. I know that for many this assertion sounds far-fetched, but it is a fact. A 2012 study published in the journal Nature“A 61-Million-Person Experiment in Social Influence and Political Mobilization,” tested the idea that voting behaviour can be significantly influenced by messages on Facebook.   Further, The Centre for European Studies released a publication entitled, ‘Social Media – The New Power of Political Influence’, in which the authors demonstrated the power of social media on global politics, evincing the dramatic impact of social media on the 2008 US presidential election, the 2011 Egyptian Revolution, among various other global events. Social media’s power to influence governmental decision making may also be implied…
