"F" is for FAITH

What is FAITH, exactly? 

The dictionary says it's this:  "A confident belief in the truth, value, or trustworthiness of a person, idea or thing; belief that does not rest on logical proof or material evidence; loyalty to a person or thing; allegiance."

The Bible says it this way:  "Now FAITH is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen" (Hebrews 11:1).

FAITIH is a gift.  The more we use it, the more confident we become in His truth, value, and trustworthiness.  The more confident we become, the better witnesses to His goodness we are.  The better witnesses, the more light we dispel.  The more light we dispel, the less darkness in the world.  And that, friends, is the whole idea!

Everybody believes in something.  My prayer is that the whole world would know that it's not a "thing" but rather a "Who" that makes life worthwhile.  FAITH gives us reason to hope.  And hope never disappoints.
