Each one of us has a longing to connect to something with eternal value in our lives. Without that connection we live aimless lives on earth. God designed us to be in partnership with Him. Through our 'Divine Connection' with Him, we understand that nothing leaves heaven until something leaves the earth. 

In Acts 10, a Roman centurion named Cornelius had a spiritual encounter with God that connected him with the supernatural that transformed his life. Whatever we connect to will influence our belief system, shape our view of the world, as well as our habits and our lifestyle. Cornelius' lifestyle of prayer and generosity got God's attention. These traits mattered to God because they are sacrificial in nature. We need to know that God is not just looking at what we do, He is looking at what is motivating us to do the things we do.

You can only know the level of your love 
by the sacrifices that you are willing to make.

When we pay attention to what matters to God, he pays attention to what matters to us.  We will answer the question today, "What matters to God?"

Hebrews 11:6 (The Living Bible) states that you can never please God without faith; without depending on him. Anyone who wants to come to God must believe that there is a God and that He rewards those who sincerely look for him.  

The key to this verse is to understand the difference between believing and faith.
  • Believing is the starting point. It's the acknowledgment that something does exist.
  • Faith is acting on that belief with corresponding action. It is acting like God is telling the truth all the time about everything. If we do not act on what we say we believe, there will be no change in our circumstances.
QUESTION: If faith is pleasing to God, how do we get it?

According to Romans 12:3, we are to think soberly because God has dealt to every man a measure of faith. In other words, when we look at our lives, we shouldn't exaggerate who we are. We can't operate in an area of our lives where we are not equipped to operate. 

For example: A measure has to do with the amount of something. A measuring cup is used in cooking, but has different levels of measurement. The good news is that you and I are not limited to the measure we have been given.

Our faith can grow beyond the measure we were given. It starts by hearing the word of God, believing the word of God and acting on the word of God. Romans 10:17 says, "So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God."(NKJV)

Faith responds when the word of God is present. 

Faith comes or arrives.


We see faith in action in Mark 5:25-34. This woman had an issue of blood for twelve years. For twelve years the word of God was absent in her life and it cost her all of her finances. Verse 27 says, 

"When she heard about Jesus, she came behind Him 
in the crowd and touched His garment." 

Notice that what she heard caused her to believe and she acted on her belief.

REMEMBER: Believing is the starting point. It's the acknowledgment that something does exist and Faith is acting on that belief with corresponding action.


  • She heard it.
  • She believed it.
  • She acted upon it.
  • She received it.
