Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, “Move from here to there,” and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you. … And if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. … Love with faith from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. … By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God’s command. … Take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. … Resist him, standing firm in the faith. … Putting on faith and love as a breastplate. … Faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word about Christ. … so that your faith might not rest on human wisdom, but on God’s power.
I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. … The only thing that counts is faith expressing itself through love. … The faith and love that spring from the hope stored up for you in heaven. Faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God.
