~ Why is Faith Important? ~
Passage ~ “Whatever is not from faith is sin” (Romans 14:23b).
Comment ~ Without faith we are operating on the human scale. With faith we are operating in the divine realm. The contextual meaning here is related to not violating our conscience. If the Spirit of God tells you not to do something but you go ahead and do it anyway it is a sin (sin of commission). Likewise if the Spirit tells you to do something and you don’t do it is a sin (sin of omission). In summary, the way to walk with God and to please God is to “Be filled with the Spirit” (Ephesians 5:18b).
