February 1, 2010: What is Faith?

Posted on : Feb 1st, 2010 | By | Category: Still Speaking

Faith is a word we throw around a lot. But what does it mean when we say “I have faith,” or I’m faithful”? For me the definition of the writer of Hebrews still makes the most sense. “Faith,” s/he says, “is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. (Hebrews 11:1) Faith is to believe in things we cannot see, faith is believing that an invisible God exists and is ever present in our lives. Some refer to this verse as proof that to have faith in God means to blindly and unconditionally trust in God, to blindly and unconditionally believe in God’s existence, to blindly and unconditionally trust God will rescue and provide for us. Yes and No! adp ezlabor homely.
