We Understand by Faith


The Christian is told that he understands "by faith." For instance, if we have major surgery, we trust the surgeon even though we have no real understanding of how he is going to operate on us. We have to trust him or there will be no operation. We understand that he has the ability to make us well, so we choose to have faith in him and his abilities. In the same manner, we trust God. Many have died at the hands of surgeons, but no one perishes who places himself or herself in the hands of God. His ability is boundless and His promises are "an anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast."( Hebrews 6:19) Doctors and pilots will fail you, friends you trust will disappoint you, elevators will let you down, but the promises of Almighty God are utterly trustworthy. There goes another minute. Gone forever. Go share your faith while you still have time.
