The greatest kind of faith


Church Calendar

Charles Warner | The Union Times Faith is what keeps us going in this world because it gives us the courage to go on even in the face of our own ignorance about how the day, of how our lives will turn out. None us can know the future and so we don't know will happen to us seconds from now let along the years and decades ahead of us. We don't even know if there will be more seconds for us, let alone years and decades. Instead, while the seconds and years will eventually run out for us, we still act on the faith that we have a future and this gives us the courage to go on regardless of the inevitable end. That is the one kind of faith that all human beings have. For the Christian, however, there is another, greater faith, the faith that comes from having Jesus as your Lord and Savior, a faith that lets you know that even with the seconds and years in this world have run out, that is not the end. This faith tells us that, while we live in this world it is not our permanent home. Our permanent home is with Jesus and so even though we cannot see the future we have in this world, we know the future we have beyond it. That is the greatest kind of faith anyone can have. It is the kind of faith we should all have.
