Faith - What You Trust, Not What You Do

Latest GIGCast is up! Looking into Hebrews 11, often called the "Hall of Faith," we look at what the "faith" means. It was "by faith" that the people listed in this chapter did the things they did, but it wasn't "what they did" that gave them their testimony of righteousness. Rather, it was their Trust in God - their faith. We've got to keep in mind that faith shows itself by what we do, but what we do is not what makes us righteous! If what we do is what makes us righteous, and we call that "faith," then faith is nothing more than self-righteousness! Faith is trusting in God, not in ourselves or our works.


  1. Hi Joel,

    A loud Amen to that!!!
    Faith is what we trust, not what we do...!

  2. Although what we talked about in this program is nothing new to me, I was encouraged myself as Mike and I talked about this! There is so much of a focus on "doing, doing, doing" in the church today, that it gets the focus off of trusting in God, to trusting in what we do. I just want to know Christ, and Him crucified, and me being raised to life again with HIM!

  3. The title alone speaks to me............

  4. Lydia,

    Believe it or not, I struggled with coming up with the title for this one because I didn't think it said enough. Thank you for confirming to me what I ended up seeing: The title says a lot! And I hope that many of God's dear children will 'get' the simplicity and truth of this message into their hearts.
