How do we live the Christian life? By faith. Faith is something brand new to us when we come to Christ. Apart from Jesus faith has no meaning. We're no longer asked to live according to the law but to live in faith upon the finished work of Jesus Christ. He alone fulfilled the old to usher in the new. In Hebrews 11 we read: "Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see." * Matt asks about prayers being hindered in 1 Peter 1:7. * Shelly wants to know about referring to ourselves as saints rather then sinners. * Can you be in relationship with Jesus but not in fellowship with him?
