I’m captured by a quote from Leonard Sweet in his book, “Giving Blood: A Fresh Paradigm For Preaching.” He writes, “Faith is being in a grace relationship with Jesus.”
I like it.
Faith requires a relationship with God. That relationship is defined by grace, is marked by love and always involves Jesus.
Let that sink in. Then embrace God.
Hebrews 11 (MSG)
11 1-2 “The fundamental fact of existence is that this trust in God, this faith, is the firm foundation under everything that makes life worth living. It’s our handle on what we can’t see. The act of faith is what distinguished our ancestors, set them above the crowd.”
