Faith is important. Faith is not easy or simple. It is a part of our everyday lives and affects us in sometimes unseen ways. Who we put our faith in is essential to our well-being. Jesus Christ was not simply a good teacher. He is "The Way, the Truth, and the Life." He is not merely our friend. He is our creator and has created us in "his image." But what does this have to do with faith? Faith in our Heavenly Father is reliant upon us accepting his whole word. In this present age, faith is being attacked. On faith, we stand and trust in the account of Genesis. It is the foundation of our understanding of God. In the beginning, he loved us enough to create a world for us and give us everlasting life. By faith through grace, we accept Christ as our Lord and Savior. That isn't something as simple as a quick prayer. It is an everyday walk with Christ. We read and meditate on God's word through our teacher, the Holy Spirit. Prayer plays a big part in having faith. Though we may not see God presently, if we look hard enough, we can see him throughout his creation and daily lives. Understanding faith gives us a greater understanding of God. Jesus showed great faith in the garden of Gethsemane. We, too, must show great faith. If Jesus can boldly show such faith to give himself over to save our eternal souls, we should have the kind of faith that honors and lives for him.
