I find it odd that we avoid certain aspects of biblical gospel centered Christianity. Usually this happens as a result of a segment of christianity abusing it. Faith is one of those things. I think people have misunderstood and have used faith to control and even wound others.
I want to blog a few posts about what I feel God has been speaking to me about faith. I think it’s important that we think through it processes it so we can pass it on to our kids. What a shame it would be that our kids miss out on what faith is and what it looks like because a small pocket of christians have turned Jesus into the genie from Aladin.
Here is what God has been rocking my world with the last couple of days.
“When is the last time I was in a place that if God didn’t come through for me I would be in trouble?”
Now I don’t believe that that statement is the complete essence of faith, but more of a faith check up. We tend to live in a safe place we can control which requires little to no faith. I want my kids to not only hear me talk about faith I want them so see what it is and what it isn’t.
