Bishop Macedo Teaches That Faith Is to Sacrifice 24 Hours a Day It Is To Renounce Yourself Daily
There is nothing in this world that can justify a sinner than the supernatural and intelligent Faith, which is based on the Word of God and not on religion, doctrines, or man. In the Bible, Paul says: For by grace you have been saved through faith and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God. Ephesians 2:8
In other words, grace comes from above. It is a favor given to us by God, as we do not deserve it. And in order to be saved, we need to use Faith. But what does the devil do?
He tries to corrupt and diminish the power of Faith. This person takes words in the Bible to make people justify their mistakes with a doctrine because they know that living by faith is difficult. He also raises doubts in thoughts, because they neutralize the power of faith.
It is necessary to understand that the exercise of intelligent Faith does not correspond simply to the attitude of attending a church or attending a meeting. Faith is to sacrifice 24 hours a day. It is to renounce yourself daily, your flesh, your will, and dreams, living in the Faith and by Faith.
To keep the Faith clean and pure, it is necessary to stay away from sin, repent and return to the practice of Faith. After all, to live in Faith is also to live injustice. We must do as God says: “Now the just shall live by faith; But if anyone draws back, My soul has no pleasure in him.” Hebrews 10:38
