The Building Blocks of Faith Part 3
“Who is Jesus"
“Where lives change and where life can begin again”
We are talking about “building blocks”. Building blocks create
something one block at a time. We as children of God are building our
faith one step at a time, building our faith to a place where our faith
can not be shaken or demolished. As we build these blocks of faith, we
will be able to stand in the face of natural circumstances and have faith
in a supernatural God that lives and abides on the inside of us and the
power that flows through us is our faith in Him.
Our first building block was the “renewing of our mind”. Recognizing
that the renewing of our mind is one day at a time. Erasing and
transforming our thoughts to the thoughts of Christ. Knowing the Word
of God and allowing those words to flow from our hearts to our mouths
rather than the words of what we see and feel. For what we see is
temporary, but the Words of God are eternal and forever. Our words
frame and develop our world, so we must renew our mind and consider
the words that we say from our mouths. Let our words be words from
God’s mouth to ours.
Our next building block was “Who Am I?” We must know who we are in
Christ before we can truly trust God and recognize the greatness inside
of each of us. As you realize who you are, it brings about a bigger
picture of yourself and your purpose in your life. Your purpose is far
beyond yourself, but it connects to each person that God brings into
your life. With each connection, it should bring about a light that
illuminates so bright, it changes the world around us.
Now we come to the next building block, “Who is Jesus?”
John 14:6 (English Standard Version)
6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one
comes to the Father except through me. 7 If you had known me, you
would have known my Father also. From now on you do know him and
have seen him.”
[Jesus] emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant, being born in
the likeness of men. And being found in human form, he humbled
himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a
Jesus was and is God, Obedient Son of God, Servant, Friend, Savior,
Mighty King, and Our Lord and example. Many people demean the role
of Jesus in our lives. He is a major building block of our faith.
What is a Lord?
Someone or something having power, authority, or influence; a master
or ruler. When someone is Lord over something, they will protect,
cover, and ensure safety and care.
Jesus is the one who has power, authority and influence over us as we
give our lives to His care. He ensures our safety and care and loves us
the way the Father does. Philippians says that Jesus emptied himself of
his deity and power and came to be a man just like we are. He chose to
love us and show us the way out of our “death cycle” into life eternal.
He became our example of truth and righteousness. He became
obedient even to death on the cross. He became our way to life.
Jeremiah 31:3 (NIV)
The LORD appeared to us in the past, saying: “I have loved you with an
everlasting love; I have drawn you with unfailing kindness.
As you read the gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, please begin
to see the character of Jesus. He lived and showed us the life that we
should all emulate in all parts of our life. His obedience to the Father,
His love for all men, the richness of the Word of God that flowed from
every part of His life; also, His ability to teach and show others the way
to God… these are just a few of the attributes of Jesus that should be
written down in the pages of our heart.
The more and more that I look at the life of Jesus, the more my faith in
God the Father grows and I stand in awe of his mercy and love and
kindness for us. My faith becomes stronger and it is built on a firm
foundation of what Christ has done for us all. I want to live my life and
walk my path like Jesus did and become so connected to the Father that
nothing could separate me from His voice and direction for my life.
When your life becomes so connected to the Father that you become
one in purpose and your will becomes His will, nothing is impossible.
Galatians 2:20 English Standard Version
20 I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ
who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the
Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.
