"Then you will understand what is right and just -- every good path. For wisdom will enter your heart, and knowledge will be pleasant to your soul. Discretion will protect you, and understanding will guard you."
~ Proverbs 2: 9-11
I am reminded that I must constantly nurture my faith. It is important to spend time reflecting, writing, praying, and attempting to live a life that reminds me that I am made in the image of God.
Faith is not just believing that Jesus lived long ago, called ordinary people to witness remarkable miracles, died for each of us, and then rose from the grave. Having faith means that we fully accept the truth that Jesus lives within us and fulfills his divine ministry in and through us. When we realize that Christ lives within us, our faith suddenly becomes the acceptance of Jesus' life, death and resurrection. It is Christ living within us that reveals to us our faith.
In many ways we are the inner bridge between Jesus and the world around us. Our faith allows for Christ to be present. That's why nurturing our faith is so important.
Stay in God's grip!
