Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.
We had just recently ended another season of Alpha at SCF, a place where non-believers/new believers can explore life’s big questions and the Christian faith in a safe and open environment. In one of the sessions the guests tackled the question “How can I have faith?”. In the video they mentioned how, in one sense, we exercise faith every day (for example, if you are seating on a chair, you are exercising faith right now; you do not know how the chair was made or who made it, but you trust it won’t just fall apart when you seat on it!). Faith is trust, and for Christians, that means trust in Jesus.
It is amazing when we witness people taking that leap of faith and accepting Jesus as their Lord and Savior. Our faith journey does not stop there. We start with believing that God is who He says He is. Then we go on in believing and trusting He will do what He says He will do!
“Faith… is the art of holding on to things your reason has once accepted, in spite of your changing moods.” -C.S. Lewis
