(An Introversion Structure)
Written by Larry M. Jaynes:
I John 5:4: For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.
Are we overcomers through our faith or have we fallen to the wrong interpretations of faith, of real spiritual faith? Ephesians 2:8 tells us that we are “saved through faith,” thus; we cannot even begin our spiritual lives with God ― without faith. II Corinthians 1:24 tells us “for by faith ye stand,” thus; we cannot even begin standing with God ― without faith. II Corinthians 5:7 tells us, “For we walk by faith,” thus; we cannot even begin walking with God ― without faith. Romans 1:17 tells us, “The just shall live by faith,” thus; we cannot even begin living with God ― without faith.

Faith is our access to God’s ultimate will for us individually, God justifies us by faith (Romans 5:1), purifies our hearts by faith (Acts 15:9), sanctifies us by faith (Acts 26:18), gives us access into grace by faith (Romans 5:2), and God gives us His righteousness by faith (Philippians 3:9).
Romans 10:17: So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
