The Shield Of Faith
John 12:44 Jesus (crying out before the people): 44 Anyone who believes in Me is not placing his faith in Me, but in the One who sent Me here. John 20:29 Jesus: Thomas, you have faith because you have seen Me. Blessed are all those who never see Me and yet they still believe. Acts 3:16 So that’s how this miracle happened: we have faith in the name of Jesus, and He is the power that made this man strong—this man who is known to all of you. It is faith in Jesus that has given this man his complete health here today, in front of all of you. Hebrews 11:1 Faith is the assurance of things you have hoped for, the absolute conviction that there are realities you’ve never seen. Hebrews 11:6 Without faith no one can please God because the one coming to God must believe He exists, and He rewards those who come seeking. Heb 12:2 Now stay focused on Jesus, who designed and perfected our faith. He endured the cross and ignored the shame of that death because He focused on the joy that was set before Him; and now He is seated beside God on the throne, a place of honor. Rev. 2:25 Just keep on task, and keep the faith until I return.
The Shield of Faith is one piece of armor that requires us to believe what Jesus has done. Faith is not only essential it is necessary. We are told without faith we cannot please God. We are also told that Jesus designed and perfected our faith. To believe in the finished works of the cross is to uphold your shield of faith.
