“And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to Him must believe that He exists and that He rewards those who earnestly seek Him.” Hebrews 11:6
What if we really believed what we say we believe?
A few years ago I wrote a song that tried to describe what faith looks like in real life. It’s called Without Faith…
Faith is the assurance of the things you’re hoping for;
Faith is when you act upon the facts you can’t ignore;
Faith is when you wait upon the future that’s in store;
Faith is when you pray because you’re in a holy war.
And without faith it is impossible
To please our God who set us free
And those who say that they love Jesus
Must live and follow faithfully.
Faith is when you stand against the fears that are within;
Faith is when you’ve fallen down but rise to stand again;
Faith is when you boldly stand beside a fallen friend;
Faith is when you stand alone while others choose to sin.
Faith is when you’re watching for the coming of the King;
Faith is when you lose your grip on all your worldly things;
Faith is when you’re not afraid of what tomorrow brings;
Faith is when you feel depressed but still you choose to sing.
A few questions to ponder:
- It’s one thing to say that you believe. It’s quite another thing to live what you believe and to EARNESTLY seek Him. Are you an earnest seeker?
- What does “faith” look like in your life?
- What about your life right now is causing you to “walk by faith and not by sight”?
