标 题： 没有信心
经 节： 若有疑心而吃的，就必有罪，因为他吃不是出于信心。凡不出于信心的都是罪。（罗马书十四章23节）
he who doubts is condemned if he eats, because he does not eat from faith; for
whatever is not from faith is sin. (Romans 14:23)
The writer of Hebrews reminds us that
without faith it is impossible to please God (Heb. 11:6). Whenever God reveals
something, He expects us to believe Him and adjust our lives accordingly. What
does this mean? It means we trust Him implicitly for all of our needs because
He says He will provide (Phil. 4:19). It means we approach crises with the
assurance that God will bring good from them (Rom. 8:28). It means we overcome
anxiety during stressful situations because God instructs us to bring our
requests to Him (Phil. 4:6). It means that we never worry that we are alone
because God said He would never leave us or forsake us (Deut. 31:6). It means
that, despite what happens in our lives, we will never doubt God’s love because
He has told us that He loves us with an everlasting love (Jer. 31:3).
At times we try to justify our lack of
faith! We know what God has promised, but we doubt that He will make a
practical difference in our life. We are filled with anxiety and excuse
ourselves by saying: “I am just a worrier!” We become bitter during a crisis
and reason that “God could not possibly bring anything good out of this pain!”
We appeal for help from everyone around us when we have a need; then we
explain: “I know God can provide for my needs, but I think I should do
everything I can, just in case.” God calls this faithlessness.
Faithlessness is sin. “But without faith it is impossible to please Him” (Heb.
