A lot of emphasis is put on our faith. How deep is your faith? No one can judge another’s faith, only God can do that. But sometimes actions reveal our faith.
What is faith? Hebrews 11:1 tells us, “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, and the evidence of things unseen.” We can’t see faith, it has no form. Bu we see the evidence of faith. We see the missionaries who risk their lives and the lives of their family to teach people in dangerous places the love of God. Most of the time they are alone in their teaching and can be put in jail or killed at any moment. That is faith to me.
In sickness, we see the faith of dying people who are still talking about God’s grace and love, even when they draw their last breath. They continue to teach their loved ones and show that they believe in God and trust his commandments.
When people are saying bad things about us and making fun of our faith, and we stand up and show our true faith, that’s faith. We humans are prone to believe what we want to believe. It’s sad, but some really bad things are said about Christians. No one is perfect.
Christians are to set the example to the world. We should be happy about ourselves, our religion and the world about us. It’s hard when so many people don’t believe in the true God. God is a God of peace, not conflict. God is a God of love, not hate. God wants everyone in the world to believe his Word. After all, Christ died on the cross for all of us, not just a few.
Do your show you’re faith in God daily by not gossiping, showing God’s love, helping others and being happy? Happiness can be gained by studying the Word and meditating on it day and night.
