Look at FAITH w/ me for a bit, will you?
We're told to "walk by faith."
The Living Word tells us that "without faith it is IMPOSSIBLE to please God."
We're also given the impression that only a few of us actually DO walk by faith.
That's not only sad, it makes me wonder.....
What IS it about "walking by faith" that we, as humans, just don't get?
Think with me for a minute....
Who has UNlimited perspective? GOD
Who as LIMITED perspective? That would be us.
So, even in a traffic jam we rely on faith; faith in people.
Let me explain:
You're humming down the road and then you see it:
A wave of red lights coming your way.
Oh, oh.....something has happened up ahead of you that probably isn't good: An accident.
You in your car and others next to you come to a halt. You can see nothing.
What do you do? Sit and fret? Perhaps?
Turn on the radio and listen to a traffic report? Likely.
How come? Because who is the BEST SOURCE to see what's happening?
The one in the HELICOPTER.
The one who is RIGHT OVER WHAT IS GOING!!
Ah, THAT'S your reliable source! Why?
BECAUSE THEY CAN SEE WHAT IS UP AHEAD OF YOU!
Can we make the application? Let's try:
JESUS is RIGHT OVER what is going on!!
JESUS is UP AHEAD OF YOU!!
Why, to me, it's the ONLY way to go!!
Purposefully walking by faith in Jesus,
