if ye will awake and arouse your faculties, even to an experiment upon my words, and exercise a particle of faith, yea, even if ye can no more than desire to believe, let this desire work in you, even until ye believe in a manner that ye can give place for a portion of my words. (Alma 32:27)
When those moments come and issues surface, the resolution of which is not immediately forthcoming, hold fast to what you already know and stand strong until additional knowledge comes. “Lord, I Believe”
It’s natural to have questions—the acorn of honest inquiry has often sprouted and matured into a great oak of understanding. There are few members of the Church who, at one time or another, have not wrestled with serious or sensitive questions. One of the purposes of the Church is to nurture and cultivate the seed of faith—even in the sometimes sandy soil of doubt and uncertainty. Faith is to hope for things which are not seen but which are true.Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters—my dear friends—please, first doubt your doubts before you doubt your faith. We must never allow doubt to hold us prisoner and keep us from the divine love, peace, and gifts that come through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. Come, Join with Us
Faith represents the blocks of building a testimony of action.
Faith also leads to action.
Faith Provides Motivation
This hope and experience provides a bulwark of stability in the minds of the individual willing to act on his faith. This faith grows to the point of expectation, rather than just hoping because experience teaches that the outcome will occur if the work is put into the belief.
That outcome gratifies the believer to the point where it creates a direct behavioral path that continues to reward the executioner.
Faith without works is void, because faith alone is nothing but mere belief.
In Holy Scripture, it is recorded that the devils believe; but have no faith to act on the belief because they are fallen. If mere belief cannot save a devil whose experience is more than mere belief, but knowledge of the divinity of great things, then what does the believer, who bears no witness of his faith, to think? He is no better off than the demons when it comes to hope and salvation.
To be faithful, people must be doers as well as believers.
