Our intellect takes us to the edge of the mountain. But it is our faith in God that makes us take the leap. Science and technology have made our world a better place. However, when these fail, it is through the gift of faith that we are empowered to face life's daily challenges, and anticipate a better present and future. Our faith grows when we choose to listen to God and follow His word. Believers need to understand that we may be considered foolish by others when we live in obedience to God. How many people would consider Abraham insane with his intention to sacrifice Isaac, or Jesus because He faced the cross rather than hide? Yet Abraham was rewarded with blessings (Gn. 17:3-9) and Jesus with His glorious resurrection. Where is your faith? Lord Jesus, may Your grace keep me faithful to Your word and way, so that I may enter into the promise of eternal life. Amen.
