15 Key points you should know about faith 

In this long series taken from 2Peter 1:5-8, I will like us to tidy up on unwavering faith.
So I made this list below bout a few other things you should understand about faith:
     
      1.  The life you live in Christ depends on faith.
 Galatians 2:20

liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of
the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.
