What Is Faith?
Copyright by Freedom in Christ, used with permission.
We can stumble over properly understanding what faith is, in part because our English translations of the Bible often use several different words, like “faith,” “trust,” and “believe” to express just one word in the original Greek which means all of these things. Real faith is not just an intellectual agreement as we might understand “belief,” but a certainty and reliance that we base our lives on. It informs all of our decisions and ultimately what we do.
In the coming week: Every day read the “Twenty ‘Cans’ Of Success” list out loud. Then pick one of the truths that is particularly appropriate to you and make a decision to believe it regardless of feelings and circumstances. If you can find a way of stepping out in faith in some practical way based on that truth, so much the better!
