DAY 4: WALK BY FAITH

This “Walk With Jesus” can largely be summed up in one sentence, “Grace made it, faith takes it.” Let’s refer back to a scripture we’ve already referenced on Day 1 of our devotional.

“For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:”

Ephesians 2:8 KJV

Notice, this gift of salvation is extended to us by way of GRACE and received THROUGH FAITH.

This is the whole ball game, folks. As new covenant believers, our trust and faith is not supposed to be like it was under the old system that brought forth a demand and pressure on our “holiness performance”. In our new covenant agreement, it says THE WORK IS FINISHED and completed by the blood of Jesus (John 19:30). You are no longer TRYING to be righteous and falling short at every turn, no, you have now been DECLARED righteous, holy, and redeemed by what has been done FOR you (Romans 5:1). Now it’s up to you to take that righteousness provided by GRACE through the measure of FAITH that has already been distributed to every man (Romans 12:3).

Grace is an unmerited favor poured out on us. GOD did that for us. It takes FAITH to believe in what GOD did for us through the sacrifice of Jesus. It takes FAITH to believe that the blood of Jesus was enough and to receive that which grace has made available. Without that faith, it is IMPOSSIBLE to please God (Hebrews 11:6).

“For what does the Scripture say? “Abraham believed in (trusted, relied on) God, and it was credited to his account as righteousness (right living, right standing with God).””

Romans 4:3 AMP

Here we see that Abraham was credited with righteousness because of his BELIEF… And scripture says that is the same way we are credited righteousness as well.

Consumed By Fire is...

No strangers to the road life, up-and coming Contemporary Christian Music band, Consumed By Fire, are living out the name of their band in a brand-new way. Comprised of Caleb Ward (lead vocals), Jordan Ward (harmonies/percussion), Josh Ward (guitar/harmonies), the three brothers from Oklahoma are living out God’s calling for their lives, to share God’s grace far and wide through music.

“If it wasn’t this form of ministry, if it wasn’t music, it would just be something else. Ministry is what we were born to do,” Caleb says. The band’s sound, heavily influenced by the music they grew up on, is thanks in part to their father’s eclectic taste. Filled with honest truths and the band’s honed musicality, “First Things First,” the band’s current radio single, is evidence of Consumed By Fire’s family bond and the unconditional love of both their earthly and heavenly fathers.

As their single climbs up the radio charts, the band is already receiving media attention with spotlights from KLove and Air1 Radio, praising the band for their“deft lyricism and tight harmonies.” With new music on the horizon as well as upcoming tour dates, the band is ready for a new, exciting year of music.
