I was a fool

An intelligent but skeptical man frequently had conversations with a preacher, but always stumbled at the fact of the Resurrection. At length they were separated. The preacher did not see the skeptic for years. Meanwhile, the skeptic became a believer in Christ. The first time the preacher saw his friend, he asked, “And what do you think now of the Resurrection?”

“Oh,” said he, “two words from Paul conquered me — they are: ‘Thou fool’ (I Corinthians 15:36). It was no argument, no satisfying my objections, but God convincing me that I was a fool!”

–Sunday School Times

 “For the foolishness of God is wiser than human wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger than human strength.” – 1 Corinthians 1:25

When God Ran

“For God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only Son,

so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.”

John 3:16, NLT

All that the Bible talks about in both doctrine and narrative

is the story that focuses in and tells us about how God has actively pursued us.

It is not the story about how we have sought Him.

~paraphrased statement of Dr. David Wells~

Dark Horses

We’ll survive the rain.

We’ll survive the pain.

~Switchfoot~

The world taunts us as cowards. They label us as weak. They scoff at our very existence. They push us around as if we’re mere toys.

Society thinks we’re nothing, that we are out of this world, out of this life.

We were born for the great blue heavens. We were born for the sunrise.

Raise the flags!

Resonate and sing the anthem!

We are rising from the ashes! We are standing up from the dark, muddy ground!

We are the dark horses!

Faith

Image

Faith is knowing that God is real and that you can trust in God’s promises. You cannot trust someone who isn’t there, nor can you rely on someone whose promises are not reliable. This is why faith is talked about as the substance of things hoped for and as the evidence of things not seen. Both words carry with them a sense of reality. Our hope is not wishful thinking. The Christian is called to see things as they really are, and not as she would simply like them to be. Faith does not make God real. On the contrary, faith is the response to a real God who wants to be known to us.

“Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen,”

Hebrews 11:1

Taken from A Slice of Infinity’s What is Faith? by Michael Ramsden
