On the Journey... (Weekly insights from FMC) March 5, 2014 by Jared Beasley
What does it mean to be faithful? We often find faith when we have no other choice, or rather faith finds us. When we are lost or in crisis we may have nothing left but faith and we relinquish control to Jesus because we no longer have the ability to control our lives. Faith in those times is wonderful, but Jesus also wants us to choose faith.
Choosing faith may prove more difficult than falling into it, choosing faith means giving up control even when we are not forced too. It may mean allowing things to resolve slowly instead of forcing them to resolve quickly or reserving judgment and waiting for discernment to take shape. Choosing faith during prosperity and good times is a difficult but worthy endeavor. Paul says “we live by faith not by sight” (2 Corinthians 5:7)…..I think he means even in the daytime with the sun shining we choose faith.
