Faith

what-is-hoped-for

Faith is believing in what we can’t see.

But why? Why do we have faith in things?

It’s because of trust.

The trust we build up between us and another person or object.

Let’s think about it for a second.  Let’s say you have this chair, right? If you’re about to sit down in this chair, do you test every chair that you sit on? The answer is no, right? So you trust that chair to hold your weight.

Why do we trust a chair when we can’t seem to trust the very person who created us?

If we can trust a chair, or gravity, why do we trust it?

Because of proof.

We don’t really have extreme proof of God (besides, you know, looking out the window).
We want hard evidence.

But that’s not always what we get. That’s why it’s so important to have faith, and we need to have extreme faith.
We need to stand firm in our faith and trust that God is in control.

(Especially for tomorrow if you live in the US!)

Alright, bye guys!
You are PRICELESS

Note from Tabitha: My favorite part of this verse is where it says, “Now faith is the reality of what is hoped for.”  We hope for eternal life someday.  We hope there’s a god up there.  It’s evident all throughout humanity; you just can’t deny that.  We all hope for different things, but ultimately, our main hope should be in Christ.  And while it seems sometimes that our hopes are not founded in reality, we have faith, and this faith is believing in what we can’t see.

It is the reality of what is hoped for.
