Weakened Faith (Part 3) (Hebrews 10:32-39)Tommy Boring, August 9, 2015
Part of the Faith series, preached at a Sunday Evening service
What is necessary to not give up on faith? The first thing is to think about it. One must remember and in order to remember, one must think. For those of us that are saved, there will always be some sort of battle where God moved to deliver you. The ones that we loved and were sick. We asked God to heal them and He healed them. There are things that Gods does that we do not understand and force us to ask Him, Why. But it doesn't change the fact that He's God. God doesn't consult us when He wants to do something. The second thing to do is to believe. The saved will say they are ok but when something happens that's horrible, their confidence is shaken. The confidence gets shaken because it didn't work out the way we thought it should had. So how can you believe when it's been stripped away? Don't give up on God but think back to what He said. We do not live an easy life, we will have trials and difficulties. We must believe and take that step of faith to know that God is in full control. Lastly, we must persevere.

32But call to remembrance the former days, in which, after ye were illuminated, ye endured a great fight of afflictions; 33Partly, whilst ye were made a gazingstock both by reproaches and afflictions; and partly, whilst ye became companions of them that were so used. 34For ye had compassion of me in my bonds, and took joyfully the spoiling of your goods, knowing in yourselves that ye have in heaven a better and an enduring substance. 35Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great recompence of reward. 36For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise. 37For yet a little while, and he that shall come will come, and will not tarry. 38Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him. 39But we are not of them who draw back unto perdition; but of them that believe to the saving of the soul. (KJV)
