We know faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen (Heb 11:1). What does it mean to live a life of faith, then? We cannot just look at this verse to understand the meaning; we must widen our scope to see the theme of faith in the New Testament.
As Christians, we cannot see the One in whom we have faith, which is itself a step of faith. Beyond that, we Christians know that God will do immeasurably more than all we could ask or imagine (Eph 3:20). Well, that is another step of faith.
How do we take these steps of faith, then? If we are supposed to live by faith and not works (Rom 1:17; Gal 2:20, 3:11), how are we to take steps of faith?
We have been learning over the last few weeks that we must first surrender to God, and then we will know Him more intimately. When we know Him more intimately, we can trust His instruction to go where it doesn’t make sense to go and do what doesn’t make sense.
Sunday at CCC, we will hear about faith. It is up to each person to walk in it!
