You Gotta Have Faith
|You Gotta Have Faith|

|Without boldness and confidence, faith is wavering. I've come to grips with this. There are people that try to take my faith away, but I won't let it happen. God is bigger than my circumstances, and I believe this. Without God, nothing quite adds up for me. My faith is what makes my everyday life tolerable. It is the core of my being. Without it, I will perish, and so will you. |
I feel compelled to ask you, what do you have faith in? I have faith in God. I have faith in his son Jesus Christ; that" he humbled himself to the point of death, even death on a cross" (Phillippians 2:1-11), and took the burden of all of our sins (past, present and future) for the forgiveness and salvation of his people. There's much more to it of course, and even summarizing it in one succinct sentence does it no justice whatsoever. You'd have to make that decision yourself. This is the most important thing in life, but we distract ourselves to the point that it becomes pointless. Many people shove it off and procrastinate by saying "I'll worry about it when I'm older". But let me ask you:
What if something were to happen where you were to lose your life? What did you have to live for? What is your purpose in life?
All of these questions surface, and if you don't have an answer, then it's time to really contemplate. What are you here for?
This isn't a religious quarrel. I hate religion/division/segregation, but I love Jesus. That's it. He's the center, and I declare myself absolutely nothing without him. You can write me off if you want, but I beg you to ask yourself these questions, and truly think about it on your own terms.
