Where does this verse come from? __________________
__:__So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
*This verse is for the person that has questions about God. God says to come to Him with your questions and He will give you evidence for your mind to consider. That is where He starts with any of us. God does not ask anyone to take a leap in the dark when you come to Him. Faith in God is not a gamble, it is the surest thing that there is, and from this verse you can see that faith rests on the tangible evidence that God shows a person, and so you can make the observation that faith is not contrary to reason. God appeals to our intellect. So, the next time you hear a person talk about faith in God being a leap in the dark; just explain this principle to them.

Answer: Colossians 3:23-24
Do you know what book of the Bible this comes from? _________________________
___:___And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men;
___:___Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ.
*The way of the world says to do the things you do to gain fame, notoriety, and climb the ladder. But, the world's way is in contrast to the way that God's people are instructed to live out their lives. It has been my experience that when we do the things that we do; even if they are seemingly minuscule tasks as unto the Lord and not unto men we have a greater impact on the people around us than if we speak the part verbally. It is strange to an unbeliever when we might be handed some kind of task that is difficult or not a very popular task to perform, but yet we do it cheerfully, without complaining, and as unto the Lord. Sometimes we might even feel like we have had a bad day, but from God's perspective we had a very good day if we remember this verse and put it into practice. People are watching you even when you think they might not be and it just could be God giving you an unpopular task to perform so He can use you as an example of what real Christianity looks like when lived out in the Lord Jesus Christ!
