This video jam titled "The Spirit of Faith" comes from a sermon preached by Dr. Vincent G. Artese titled "The Spirit of Faith".
Though the outward man is perishing the inward man is being renewed day by day. One must see the eternal weight of glory through God's power and renounce the hidden things of shame. One must receive Jesus Christ as the Truth. Through faith in Christ we can be changed, but it is a synergistic process. The Holy Spirit does the renewing every day, but our faith either confirms or denies it through our works and this produces a testimony. The natural person is corrupt because they put self before God. The corruption must leave, each person must starve every principle in us that is opposed to God! God changes us from the inside through the gospel. Holiness is produced as a Christian renounces corrupting behavior. Even Christians can veil the Gospel and hide the Truth from themselves and become unfruitful. A believer is one who continues to believe. Beware of apostasy! Do not love the world! Our nature must be changed by the Truth, when Christ is the Truth there is victory. To stay in the light one must stay in the Truth. We have all been corrupted by sin and can be amended by grace. The mind of the Spirit is in obedience to God. Sinful corruption does not go away by ignoring it, the disciple must carry the cross and die to self. The Christian bears the cross to death to sin and self. God enables His people to go through trials by faith. In order for there to be a covenant there must be unity. The Spirit of Faith demands obedience. In Christ is the promise of the Father. Perfect love and perfect faith are the result of living the life of faith. Those remaining consecrated to God are those that He sanctifies as they walk by faith. The power is of God and not of us.
