Wesley's Notes for 2 Corinthians 5:7

5:7 For we cannot clearly see him in this life, wherein we walk by faith only: an evidence, indeed, that necessarily implies a kind of seeing him who is invisible; yet as far beneath what we shall have in eternity, as it is above that of bare, unassisted reason.


People's Bible Notes for 2 Corinthians 5:7

Yes! We experience God only by faith. This experience of God is our reward. If you could reason and think your way to God - we would have a world of happy philosophers and academics. Every time we cast down logic and reason in favour of faith - is a step walked in faith.....towards God.


Lina Joseph's comment on 2015-02-03 08:47:05:

There are times when we wonder how do we make it through from pay day to pay day. But through our faith when we believe God makes it possible for us we can make it through. God has been very good to me.

We walk by the revealed Word of God. Not by what we 'feel ' is the right way. It 's a day to day, minute by minute walk.


Terry's comment on 2014-10-16 19:56:46:

This is a key verse to influence us to be blind to reality, and accept biblical tripe in the face of what we see.


Nkrumah J.k's comment on 2014-08-03 02:00:28:

If I look at constraints and challenges around me and feel unable and inadequate, I walk by sight and am carnally minded. But if I look unto Him God who is more than able to do exceedingly abundantly than I can ask or think of then I walk by faith.


DAVID DELGADO's comment on 2014-05-23 18:57:54:

Faith comes to you, after you believe, and recieve Jesus as your savior. Trust in him in all things and thank him each, and every day.


MockingBird's comment on 2014-05-23 16:39:36:

If I would allow the word of God to motivate me then I would be living by faith. To let the word of God be my final answer. To shut my eyes feelings to the things around me. Very rewarding to walk by Faith. Faith pleases God and when I please God then no foe can successufully be against me. praise God !!!!


Dharam's comment on 2014-05-23 07:35:43:

even when it looks like everything will go against us, we can trust in God with the knowledge that he will come through for us. God never violates his word therefore it is our unbelief that causes us not to get what God has in store for us.


Toni's comment on 2014-05-23 06:22:01:

Faith is the key to Salvation. In order to please God, we must first believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him. Hebrews 11 6 Someone above asked the question "how do I build my faith? " It starts by falling down on our knees. Prayer is our connection to God through His dear Son Jesus. The more we bow down to Christ, the more He reveals Himself to us, and will baptize us with the Holy Ghost, which is the Spirit of Truth. Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God. Romans 10 17 Read the word of God and pray. Faith is saying Lord, I don 't see you, but I know you are real. I 'm going to pray and read your Word, until you make yourself known to me. We have to diligently seek God, and when we show God we are sincere, He will reveal Himself to us. This isn 't done with the natural mind nor can be. God is a Spirit and they that worship Him must worship Him in Spirit and in truth. John 4 24 Not what the eyes see, but what the heart believes. This is a faith walk.


Olabode's comment on 2014-05-23 02:21:39:

without faith, it is impossible to please him. faith makes all thing possible in life.we can develop our faith in God by studying the bible regularly, spending quality time with him, listening to other 's testimonies is the key that can open all doors.


Irish Loee's comment on 2014-05-16 05:21:00:

As children of god we must walk mentally knowing that Christ is with us and we know in the physical realm we can 't see with our physical sight


Ezekiel Oladosu's comment on 2014-03-08 20:45:42:

To walk by faith is the principal thing to live a life that for signs and wonder from The Lord of hosts which dwelleth in mount Zion and to live a life of peace round about Shalom


Fidelity's comment on 2014-02-01 12:37:43:

Faith is like age,it adds everyday depending on how you build it.God is interested in men who will put all their faith in him.

"How do I build my faith?"
Pray for it and read the scriptures through the written Word in the King James Bible.


Rob's comment on 2013-12-31 18:23:36:

Amen to that Saint Paul. Although he does have his ways to light the way!

Thank you LORD! Thank you Jesus! Thank you Holy Spirit!


Bademosi A.'s comment on 2013-12-04 06:43:03:

We walk by faith not by sight.We are not moved nor shaken by what we see{physical}but trusting and believing in the word God.


Kwadwo Sarfo's comment on 2013-11-04 00:27:28:

Even though we walk and live in this fallen and temporary world, our lives are not fully and only determined or directed by what we see, feel, touch, smell or taste but we as seeing the invisible God, evidently substantiate the hope created in us by the promise(s) in His word. We thus accept as more true the report of God than the fact as reported by man either through the naked eyes or scientific observation as afforded by instruments. Our sight is limited to the physical things from the earth to the stars. But there are spiritual elements within this range as well beyond it, which spiritual activity of elements do not lend themselves to scientific analysis or naked human sight. Our spiritual senses must therefore be exercised to see the spiritual in addition to the physical. Amen
