「我已經為你祈求,叫你不至於失了信心。」(聖經路加福音三十二章 22 節)

 

  基督徒,當心你的信心,因為只有信心能使你得著上面來的祝福。禱告不能叫你從神的寶座上得著什麼,除非禱告有信心。

 

  信心是連天接地的電線;藉它,我們可以傳達我們的請求給神,神可以傳達祂愛的答應給我們。如果信心的電線折斷了,我們怎樣能得到神的答應呢?

 

  我現在在患難中間麼?我可以藉信心得到幫助。我現在將被仇敵打敗麼?我可以藉信心躲在大元帥背後。

 

  沒有信心,我便無法呼求神。它是通天唯一之路。如果阻塞了,我怎麼能和神交通呢?

 

  信心使我和天接觸,信心使我披戴耶和華的能力信心使「神....幫助我們」(聖經羅馬書八章 31 節)。它使我消滅陰府的勢力,它使我踐踏蛇首龍體。哦,沒有它,我不知要到什麼地步!

 

  所以,基督徒,當心你的信心。「你若能信,在信的人,凡事都能。」(聖經馬可福音九章 23節── 司布真(C. H. Spurgeon

  「…本乎信…叫應許定然歸給一切後裔。」(羅四16) 
  信心尊重上帝,上帝尊重信心。

**************************

"I have prayed that your own faith may not fail."(Luke 22:32.)

CHRISTIAN, take good care of thy faith, for recollect that faith is the only means whereby thou canst obtain blessings. Prayer cannot draw down answers from God's throne except it be the earnest prayer of the man who believes.

Faith is the telegraphic wire which links earth to Heaven, on which God's messages of love fly so fast that before we call He answers, and while we are yet speaking He hears us. But if that telegraphic wire of faith be snapped, how can we obtain the promise?

Am I in trouble? I can obtain help for trouble by faith. Am I beaten about by the enemy? My soul on her dear Refuge leans by faith.

But take faith away, then in vain I call to God. There is no other road betwixt my soul and Heaven. Blockade the road, and how can I communicate with the Great King?

Faith links me with Divinity. Faith clothes me with the power of Jehovah. Faith insures every attribute of God in my defense. It helps me to defy the hosts of hell. It makes me march triumphant over the necks of my enemies. But without faith how can I receive anything from the Lord?

Oh, then, Christian, watch well thy faith. "If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth." --- C. H. Spurgeon. 

         We boast of being so practical a people that we want to have a surer thing than faith. But did not Paul say that the promise was, by FAITH that it might be SURE? (Romans 4:16) --Dan Crawford.

        Faith honors God; God honors faith.
