Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. ~ Hebrews 11:1 (NIV)
Putting our faith in something we cannot see can seem a stupid thing to do, especially to those who don’t believe in the existence of God. However for those of us who do believe, it isn’t such a ridiculous believe because God has proved his existence to us – he offers us forgiveness every time we commit a sin, and he still loves and cares for us today, regardless of our past, because he cares about our future.
God actively shows me that my faith in him is merited, because he answers my prayers. I’m sure many of you can testify of God’s love for you too.
