Believe in God is the fundamental teaching of the Christian faith, without this firm belief a Christian has no direction to walk to. To firm one’s belief the first priority is to build the basic foundation of that belief and the definition of faith that came from the sacred Bible itself is: “Faith is the substance of things hoped for, and the evidence of things not [yet] seen” (Hebrews 11:1).
Faith is also quoted in the Holy Bible as a fruit or quality imparted by God’s Holy Spirit (1 Corinthians 12:9; Galatians 5:22). The first quoted verse tells us that the Christian belief requires believing in God and the fate He has created and in the second verse faith is describe as the origin of God itself. It is said that the believer needs to have a firm faith to pass through trials in life and to build that firm faith he needs to trust the Almighty.
In order to build firm belief in God and the faith in Christianity, one should begin with committing himself to the mercy of the Almighty. Surrendering yourself to His Will brings upon greater blessings towards you and surrender means obeying Gods commands. Obeying them and putting them above all your priorities and feelings.
Martin Luther’s famous saying about faith is that: “Faith is a living unshakable confidence”. By this, we understand that a firm faith is the one that is not shaken by any storm which come into one’s life as a test.
Mark Twain quoted about the Faith saying, “Faith is believing in what ain’t so.” Thus making it clear that believe in God and our creator who exists but is unseen is pertinent.
The earlier Christians relied directly on the apostles’ and prophets’ teachings about Christ and exposition of the Old Testament Scriptures (Acts 17:2-3). When the apostles and prophets passed on, they left us the Holy Bible, that teaches us what Christ taught and teaches us not only what to believe but how to live (2 Timothy 3:16-17).
Faith is also bestowed upon people by God himself, it is a blessing that everyone gets but to maintain and increase that firm believe one must always have a connection with its spirit. The spirit has the connection with God and this is the basic fundamental of firm faith in the Almighty and the faith of Christianity.
