I want everyone to know that it feels so good to finally be back to what I love and that is blogging. I want to thank all my readers for their prayers and encouragement during the move to Kerrville. We are moved in and the boys are adjusting very well to all the changes with new school, friends, church, house, and all the other stresses that come along with moving. We are so happy and thankful that they are doing so well.
Of course, my wife is extremely busy with papers and projects as she graduates in a little less than a week. We both think her new job is going to be a wonderful opportunity and a blessing to our family as she has many benefits that will help us all over time.
There are several job opportunities that I am currently pursuing. I know that God will provide and open the doors of opportunity that he desires for my life. God has never let me down and will provide opportunities to make a difference for his kingdom as I seek His will in my life daily. God has put in my heart the desire to write a book about what I have gone through in my life with the illnesses that I have gone through and overcome and the faith lessons that it has taught me over the last two years.
Again, I want to thank you readers for all you do and continue to do to strengthen my faith and help my relationship with God. God is so good. May we never forget all he does and continues to do in our lives from day to day.
I want each of us in this post to answer and discuss the subject of faith. I know the Hebrew writer gives the definition of faith in Hebrews 11:1 and lets the readers know that in verse 6 that without faith it is impossible to please God.
So, how would you define faith to a non-believer? Is faith a gift from God or is it something that is instilled in all mankind or just those who have been "called"? Does faith in Christ save us? If so, why do some Christians want their own works to save them? What does it mean to have an active faith? Does faith lead to repentance? If so, how? Is it really possible to grow in our faith and if so how? Can we doubt even if we have faith? Can you think of men and women in the Bible who had faith yet doubted? When is it easiest for believers to doubt or loose faith? Can we loose faith? Are we saved by faith? Do athiests have faith? Is there more to faith than just believing in the Trinity? How do faith and works work together? If you would like to share with us, how has your faith devoloped and matured over time? Should there ever be a time where we stop growing and stretching our faith?
