Faith is of paramount importance. As a matter of fact, it takes faith to persevere all through hardtimes, trials and challenges. Moreover, it takes faith to believe that what the future or tomorrow holds in stock is far much greater than whatever the past or yesterday has already offered i.e. it takes faith to acknowledge and believe it is possible that the best or the greatest of good old days or yester years is probable to become the worst or the least of what is yet to come i.e. what is ahead of you. Besides, it takes faith to leap and reap God's promises, healing, health, breakthrough and even salvation of human soul. Yes! it is written in (John 11 : 40) "if only you would believe, you shall see or receive the glory of God". Permit me to tell you that the importance of faith is synonymous with importance of love and money. Oh! yes, love is also of paramount importance. No wonder the scripture says in (1st Corianthians 13 : 2) It says, "whoever that do not love is "NOTHING" .i.e. irrespective of your social status, qualification and affluence. For the fact you don't love all and sundry, you are "WORTHLESS" in God's sight. Come to think of money, the scripture says in (Ecclesiastes 10 : 19) it says, "money answers all things and not at all some things". Obviously that infers, as long as you are still living you can't do without money. Moreover, with regards to faith itself which is the subject matter, the scripture says in (Hebrews 10 : 38) it says, "the just shall live by faith, but if anyone draws back my soul will have no pleasure in him" i.e. the person in question. Likewise, the scripture says in (Hebrews 11 : 6) it says, "without faith it is impossible to please God". Now, all of the above indicates, it takes nothing else to please God almighty except faith. Besides, all of the above illustrations evidently signifies, faith is truly of paramount importance. So, if you've been faithless all these while. Hence forth, reawaken your senses and then become and remain faithful no matter what happens. I mean, admit the importance of faith, imbibe it (faith) as your attitude, profess it convincingly and undoubtedly too. As well, live with/by it on daily basis. For, that's just expected of you.
