A living faith is less about some prayer you prayed years ago and is more about how God is transforming you right now. Faith that is real, living, and active is the kind of faith the world needs to see. A faith that spouts off dogmatic statements and creeds is not living, but dead. Those who choose that kind of faith live in graveyards.

A lot of people talk about "having faith," but some people's faith is based on a belief system or a one-time decision for Christ. Living faith is when we not only trust God for our salvation when we surrender our lives to him, it is when we live each moment by a type of faith that believes things change when we pray, healing and miracles still happen if we open our eyes and open our minds, and that God is still active today. A living faith doesn't see the Scriptures as the story of what happened back then, but sees the Scriptures as the origins of our story that is still being written today.
