On Faith Part 3

17 Oct

After writing about Faith several times, many comments have come in asking for a more defined meaning and explanation of what it really is and how do we utilize it.

This could present a problem since I, at first, offered Faith as something individual to all of us. It is this and so much more.

Hebrews 11:1 Now Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

Over the years, I have found, faith to be a personal thing and that almost everyone has their own way of defining and measuring it. To have faith is to defy logic. It takes faith to think positively. It takes faith to believe that there is a loving God who cares deeply about our pain. To believe in life, the universe, or yourself after numerous failures is to have courage. Faith is an act of courage. It is choosing to get up in the morning and face our fears and believe that God will help us. Faith is choosing to believe that even though we may have failed one hundred times before that we can succeed the next time. At the same time I’ve discovered that Faith should also unite us not divide us.

Watching what is happening to our nation and some of.our churches, I wonder just where our Faith is taking us. Some churches are teaching the doctrine that their way is the only way and our politicians are doing everything to keep the country divided. Needless to say this is not the message Jesus gave us.

If we follow God’s word, Faith, Hope, Love and Charity should be forefront in our daily life, with love your neighbor and yourself and as I have loved you.

I am going to answer the question as to what Faith really is this way:

Faith is Love, just as God is Love and it is intended to unite us all, regardless of who you are or what you believe!

We, as humans, tend to forget not everyone is the same, believes the same, looks the same or even acts the same.. but be assured each and everyone of us is made in the image of God, by God and He loves us all. Why can’t you?

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
