Live It Out
Establishing The Biblical Principle and Pattern
Abraham: Genesis 12: 1 – 5
1. He Heard
2. He Trusted
3. He Responded
4. He Became
A Working Definition:
• Faith is learning to hear God’s voice, trust in His character and then respond!
• Faith isn’t faith until its applied!
Jesus: Matthew 4: 18 – 22
• A Cultural Christian vs a Disciple of Jesus
• Instruction + Application = Growth
