God’s Glory in Faith

“Faith does not operate in the realm of the possible. There is no glory for God in that which is humanly possible. Faith begins where man’s power ends.”

– George Muller

    Again, I LOVE this quote!!!! If our Redeemer, Jesus Christ can only do what we could do if we really, really tried hard, we wouldn’t need that kind of God. Our God can DO ANYTHING!!!!! And He’ll never leave us or forsake us.
    Merry Christmas to you all – trust Him with all of your heart!
    In His Love,

    I hate to throw a theological water baloon at your post, and I don’t mean to undermine what you said; I just want to say a quick thing on faith. I have seen posts where faith is more than often explained to be mans ability to “be brave” and do things, of course with the power of Gods help. Though in a sense this is true just as Jesus said, “if you had faith you could move mountains, etc…” it shouldn’t be the main focus of faith, i.e. “doing things.” Faith is the very substance that allows us to be forgiven and accepted in the beloved and that is where we derive our power. It is not after we try, but the whole time wholly dependant on God to proceed forth in a fallen world, for all fall short of the glory of God.

    Again i’m not minimizing or saying that you were doing this, but I think it’s easy to misunderstand and wanted to throw some insight out there.

    Forgive me if I came off abrasive.

    Nor abrasive, Chris. It’s another insight – which we can all benefit from.
    God gives us His Word and we can just dialog over it. When we say something “important” and then we hear others discussing that topic, aren’t we glad to hear someone’s really listening? I think Jesus must smile when we “banter” back and forth about The Word -HIM!!!!
    Merry Christmas and a New Year full of Hi blessings,
