Faith is one of those words used to explain something that we can’t see.
It’s putting trust into something without having proof of its existence.
But it’s so much more than that!
To have faith, we must have confidence that the unseen actually exists.
We must be willing to give our full allegiance to it.
We must use that faith to penetrate the walls of fear, hate, anger, sadness.
Our hearts must be so consumed with faith that no other path will do.
But even that isn’t all of it.
Faith is an obligation, but it’s also a free gift from the Holy Spirit.
It’s ours to keep and as a result of it, good works will follow.
Even they are not our own doing.
Our good deeds are placed in us by the one who gave them to us.
The very Spirit of God Himself. A means whereby we can show our gratitude. His love – His mercy – His patience – His compassion – His forgiveness,
Covers us – encourages us – takes us in His arm and comforts us.
He bathes us in His righteousness and washes away all our iniquities.
My faith is built on nothing less than Jesus’ blood and righteousness.
