We live by faith, not by sight

We Christians are called “crazy” because we believe in a being that we can not even see. This is why they brand us as irrational beings, fanatics, lunatics, etc. Well, it’s also crazy to think that there are aliens, life on other planets and flying saucers. I think it is more rational to believe in the existence of a being that created all things, well, it is also crazy to think that the world was created out of nothing.

The Bible says:

6 Therefore we are always confident and know that as long as we are at home in the body we are away from the Lord.

7 For we live by faith, not by sight.

8 We are confident, I say, and would prefer to be away from the body and at home with the Lord.

2 Corinthians 5:6-8

What is the faith? Hebrews chapter eleven defines it as the certainty of what is expected and the conviction of what is not seen. If we could see God then it would be too easy to believe, then, we have the example of Thomas, he did not believe until he put his fingers in the hands and side of Jesus, at the time he could do that, it was too easy to believe.

The Bible also says that without faith it is impossible to please God and that those who come to Him must believe that God hears them and is present. That is to say, we do not pray to pray, we are not Christians because we are, because it is fashionable or cool. We are Christians because God has intervened in our lives in a supernatural way and this produces in us a great faith in the existence of God.

We do not walk by sight, we do not walk by what is before our eyes, but we see further and we believe in God even though we can not see Him and this is really faith.

Let us continue to maintain this faith, to continue burning that burning flame in our hearts, that flame that impels us to believe in God more and more every day.
