Proof of the Invisible

Proof of the Invisible

Faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the proving of things not seen (Hebrews 11:1).

By your faith you demonstrate the reality of the unseen things of God to the world at large.

By the victory your faith wins, you prove the value of faith in the Gospel of Jesus Christ to other people. By your strength when you have problems, you learn to rely more upon God. When you are able to overcome temptation by faith, your belief is seen to be reality.

You say, “God. I am not sure.” But God gives strength and confidence, a light in your eye and a song on your lips, and people look at you and say, “God must be with you.”

No one can ever persuade me not to believe in God. My father and my mother believed in God. And I believe in God, not because they said so, but because of what I saw in their lives as a result of their belief. – G. Campbell Morgan [adapted]

Eli’s Reflection: Think of one person who has proven to you that God is real, by the way that they have lived, or even suffered. Why don’t you tell them? Go and see them and do just that, encouraging them and praising the Lord for them.

Come Back to Jesus!

How about you, friend? May I ask you this? Have you turned from your sins and received Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. Is your life truly devoted to Him? Do you bear the fruit of a life lived for Christ? And, if so, are you taking the love, time, and care daily to tell the world about Him? Are you sold out to Jesus? And to telling people the only way to everlasting life is through Christ?

I Don’t Believe in Me

That’s when it dawned on me. That I don’t believe in me. And that I don’t believe I can succeed. In anything. You know how our world teaches us that we should believe in ourselves? And believe that we can do anything and everything? That we should chase after our dreams? That we should trust in ourselves? That we should believe we can do whatever we set our minds to? And so on? How could I keep moving ahead in my ministry work without believing in me? And in what I could accomplish in my strength?

Their Sin is No Excuse

I can recognize a finger-pointer in a heartbeat. I spent so many years being one that I can spot one in a flash. Do you know what I’m talking about? It’s the person who is so focused on pointing the finger at the other person’s sins that he or she can’t see his or her own and won’t do anything about his or her own. It’s the person who even if she acknowledges his or her sin excuses away his or her own wrongdoing by judging and condemning the other person for his or her sin and decides that the other person’s sin is worse and thereby is the perfect justification to continue in one’s own sin.
