Collection: Faith

Webster’s New World dictionary uses words such as: “confidence, belief, to be convinced of, reliance or complete trust.”[1] The Greek word often used in the New Testament is pistis, which Strong’s Biblical Dictionary defines as: “persuasion, giving credence to someone, moral conviction of religious truth.”[2] What we are saying is that faith comes to a person when he or she gives credence to or trusts that God is speaking to us through His Word.

We could paraphrase it by saying that faith comes from hearing God speak, and hearing God speak through the Word of God. The more one feeds, or “inputs” their mind with God’s thoughts, the more faith will grow in a person’s heart.
