Hebrews 11:6 (KJV)
But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
Before Diego received Christ as his Lord and Savior, he was a very morally upright person. He was known everywhere to be a person of great integrity. He was more morally upright than many Christians he knew, so he didn’t think he needed their salvation to make him righteous. But in his heart he longed for God and knew he was not right with God. He desired to be close to God, but he knew he was not.
When he received Christ as [his] Lord and Savior, it became clear to him that he was made righteous because of his faith in the Lord Jesus. Without this faith, no matter how morally upright he was, he could not please God.
It is good to be morally upright, and faith in Christ produces a life that is morally upright. Daniel was highly esteemed in heaven (Dan 10:11); he lived a life guided by the fear of the Lord. Cornelius attracted the attention of heaven because of this same reason (Acts 10:1-4). But morality is not what saves a person. Faith in Christ is what saves a person. But we know that true faith in Christ produces a life that is morally upright.
Because we are not of this world, Satan the prince of this world would fight us and try to overthrow us. But he can only succeed if we let our faith falter by constantly doing things that violate our consciences, or suffocate our faith by being unequally yoked together with unbelievers (see 1 Tim 1:19, 2 Cor 6:14).
Go into today remembering that every child of God defeats this evil world, and we achieve this victory through our faith (1 John 5:4-NLT).
