Realities You’ve Never Seen

I had an intense conversation with a six-year-old yesterday.  She could not grasp the idea of believing in Jesus without seeing him.  Her questions were deep and profound, putting my theological abilities to the test.  I’m looking forward to our next theological conversation.  

The thing is . . . she’s right . . . it’s hard to believe in who and what can’t be seen.  There’s plenty of older human beings who’ve decided the unseen of God means God is not real.  And, for many, pursuing God seems to be a waste of time.  

Until. 

There’s a realization that life has to be more than a one-dimensional existence without God.  

Here’s the thing—I say this with all I have within me–the meaning of life is relationship, not only with one another BUT also with God.  

I’ve learned my unbelief is my sole (soul) responsibility and the most common reason for the lack of connection with God.  One of the best ways to counteract unbelief is to develop faith habits, actively pursuing God every. single. day.  In other words, faith is an exercise of the soul.  

Most days will be a walk of faith; however, the times a leap of faith is made will open the door to discovering even more of the limitless reality of the unseen of God. 

I hope you’re able to take a leap of faith today—Kerrie

“Faith is the assurance of things you have hoped for, the absolute conviction that there are realities you’ve never seen”  (Hebrews 11:1, Voice).
