378 - What is the Gift of Faith?
In 1 Corinthians 12:9, in the beginning of the second group of spiritual gifts, it says one of the gifts is faith.
“To another faith by the same Spirit” – 1 Corinthians 12:9a.
But what kind of faith are we talking about? Is this saving faith? The faith God gives to those chosen by Him from the foundation of the world? (Eph. 1:4). Or is it something else? And, if so, what exactly is this kind of faith?
Is it faith like Abraham had when he left his home to travel to a land the Lord would show him? (Gen. 12:1). Is it faith like Moses had when he approached Pharaoh with a staff and a simple message from the Lord, “Let My people go!”? (Ex. 8:1). Or is it faith like Peter had when he asked Jesus to let Him step out of the boat and walk on water to Him? (Matt. 14:28). Or again, is it something else?
And is this faith really a gift from God to reveal the Holy Spirit to others like the Scriptures say? (1 Cor. 12:7). Could this gift be for you and me today? Or was this gift only given to others who lived long ago in a land far, far away?
So many questions. Do you want some answers? Then keep listening.
