Living in Faith

Star



From the Writings of Baha'u'llah


Emphasis on deeds,
not words

The essence of faith is fewness of words and abundance of deeds; he whose words exceed his deeds, know, verily, his death is better than his life.

Exercise patience

Be patient under all conditions, and place your whole trust and confidence in God.

Immortality crowns
life of the Spirit

Ö the life of the flesh is common to both men and animals, whereas the life of the spirit is possessed only by the pure in heart who have quaffed from the ocean of faith and partaken of the fruit of certitude. This life knoweth no death, and this existence is crowned by immortality.

Reliance on God

Rely upon God, thy God and the Lord of thy fathers. For the people are wandering in the paths of delusions, bereft of discernment to see God with their own eyes, or hear His melodies with their own ears.

Submission
to Godís Will

The source of all good is trust in God, submission unto His command, and contentment with His holy will and pleasure.

Fearing none

Be not afraid of anyone, place thy whole trust in God, the Almighty, the All-Knowing.

Steadfastness

When the victory arriveth, every man shall profess himself as believer and shall hasten to the shelter of Godís Faith. Happy are they who in the days of world-encompassing trials have stood fast in the Cause and refused to swerve from its truth.
