Unafraid Day Four
'By faith we understand that the entire universe was formed at God’s command, that what we now see did not come from anything that can be seen. And it is impossible to please God without faith. Anyone who wants to come to him must believe that God exists and that he rewards those who sincerely seek him.'
Everything we base Christianity on is Faith. We were not there when Jesus came to the earth, died and rose again. We were not there when the earth was created. In fact all of the things we read in the Bible we must believe in faith because we have not seen it ourselves. I sometimes like to think of faith as a type of energy source for our life. If our faith in God and His Word is weak, we become weary when struggles come in our path. However, when our faith is firm and strong in the Lord, it’s easier to understand that whatever we encounter is there to mold us into what God wants us to be. Faith is necessary if we are choosing to follow after the “mold” of Christ. Like verse 6 says, for us to draw near to God, we must believe (in faith) that He exists. If we love God we should have faith, if for no other reason, because it is impossible to please Him without it.
