Sermon Notes



In Judaism faith is not a binary yes or no. Faith is not static and fixed but dynamic and fluid. Like the body, the soul needs nourishment and exercise in order to flourish.

Emunah (faith, steady and reliable like Moses’ hands.) – immunah (exercise)

Faith is not the stubborn conviction in the absence of reason, but faith is a way of knowing that is rooted in experience.

There is a balance between belief and action. My obedience when God speaks, expresses my faith in Him. God speaks, I hear His voice, I obey what He asks as an expression of my faith in Him.

To act upon my belief is to exercise my faith.

Faith comes by hearing, hearing by the Word of God.

A Jewish man of faith is a “practicing” Jew.

The works that I do in my FATHER’S name testify about me.

Obedience expresses your faith.

James 2:14 (NIV)

What good is it, my brothers and sisters, if someone claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save them?

You do not believe because you are not my sheep.

A lack of obedience and faith may reveal something about your relationship with God.

Matthew 7:22 (NIV)

22 Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and, in your name, perform many miracles?’

What do my sheep do?

Listen to my voice. (Faith comes by hearing.)

I know them. (Hearing by the Word – Ha Logos)

They follow me. (The more I know him, the easier it is to obey.)

What do I do for my sheep?

No one can snatch my sheep out of my hand. Nor can they snatch my sheep out of my FATHER’S hand. (We are one.)

I give eternal life to my sheep, and they will never perish.

Well done good and faithful servant.
