How should faith be defined? This question is something that crosses the mind of every Christian now and then. Some may define faith as a feeling that makes them able to believe in anything they want to believe. For others, this definition is faux. For them, faith means you stop thinking; as faith strengthens reason and meaning lost their importance.
Here, what we need to observe is that both the groups defined faith in a wrong manner. Actually, faith is not wishful thinking. Simply put, it is certainly not all about believing in things that do not exit.
So what is the correct answer?
“Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen,” Hebrews 11:1
Faith is knowing that God is real and His promises can be trusted on. Faith does not make God real, but it is the response to a real God.
“I am the Lord, and there is no other; besides Me there is no God. I arm you, though you do not know me, so that they may know, from the rising of the sun and from the west, that there is no one besides me; I am the Lord, and there is no other” (Isaiah 45:5-6).
Christian Gospel is not a message that revels in ignorance. It is basically the revelation of Jesus in His children. Christians trust in a God who has been revealed to them in the Son and the Spirit. They believe because God is real.
