“You must not lose faith in humanity. Humanity is an ocean; if a few drops of the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become dirty.”
Faith is the virtue that God seems to prize most in human beings. When I read through the bible it’s impossible to ignore the importance that’s placed on faith, on trusting in God. Without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.
Why is it so crucial?
1.Salvation: This one is surely obvious to us. “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith.”
2. Blessing: But faith leads to more than salvation. Faith is the doorway for all the other blessings that God wants to bring into your life. Without faith we’re standing outside the door, unable to cross the threshold. With faith the other virtues that God most wants to bring to us can start to come into play. The Magnificent Five are faith, hope, love, joy and peace. But they start with faith – without faith we can’t access the hope, love, joy and peace that God longs to bring to us.
This reminds me of a beautiful song called A Day to Remember Have Faith in me, which is as follows:
Have faith in me
'Cause there are things that I've seen I don't believe
So cling to what you know and never let go
You should know things aren't always what they seem…….
