Faith is belief and trust in and loyalty to God... firm belief in something for which there is no proof. We, as believers, have been given a measure of faith!!  The Word of God calls for us to attain unity of the faith, knowledge of the Son of God, reach maturity and fullness of Christ. R.A. Torrey says about faith, "People who pray for power but neglect the Bible abound in the church. But the power that belongs to God is stored up in the great reservoir of His own Word, the Bible. We cannot obtain or maintain God’s power in our own lives or in our work unless there is deep and frequent meditation on the Word of God."
