II Corinthians 5:7: For we walk by faith, not by sight.
By Chris Musgrove of Future Now
God puts a high premium on faith because, according to the Word of God, we have been justified by faith, have access by faith, are to walk by faith, live by faith, and without faith we cannot please God. Romans 5:1-2: Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. 2 Through him we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in hope of the glory of God. We have been justified (made righteous) by faith (trusting in, clinging to, and relying on) in Jesus Christ. We have also obtained access by faith into the grace we are now standing in. Just like money is the currency used to make transactions in the natural realm, faith is the currency that is used to make prayer transactions in the spirit realm. If you go into a store and you don’t have any money, you can’t make a purchase. In the same way, you can’t make a spiritual transaction without faith.
In Mark 5:34 Jesus is speaking to the woman with the issue of blood and says, “Daughter, your faith has made you well. Go in peace, and be healed of your affliction.” Jesus didn’t say my faith has made you whole. You can’t spend someone else’s faith no more than you can spend someone else’s money. To those that still think that our faith is not important to God, check out these verses Romans 1:17: For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith for faith, as it is written, “The righteous shall live by faith.” Hebrews 11:6: But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. Let everything we do be done by faith,
