- I think most of us have a tendency to want a sign as proof that this thing—anything—is something authentic. Faith, as an example, is a concept that is foreign to me. I understand (sort of) that I have to exercise faith to have faith and this is something I find difficult to do. But Jesus seems to do what I have trouble doing without wrestling with reason or feelings. I’d like to get to this place of using faith correctly.
- My incomplete education and false Christian teaching get in the way of making the most of faith and so I fritter away opportunities to progress in God’s schoolroom. Another problem is that I’m sitting in this class, evidence has been made available to me, but I’m translating it in a disrespectful way.
- For instance when someone asks, “who do you say Jesus is?” Do I actually suppose that Jesus is the person the Bible says He is? Do I say without hesitation Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of the living God like Peter did? What’s more if I truly accept this as genuine it has significant implications for how I engage today, doesn’t it?
- Thinking like God is a new way of thinking for me yet it is achievable because of what Jesus has accomplished, right? “Daily take up your cross, forget your shallow self, and let me tutor your spirit,” Jesus said. (Matthew 16: 24-26 sort of).
- I suspect Jesus is able to teach me a thing or two about “faith.”
What do you think or do you think about faith at all?
