“Faith is not a blind thing, for faith begins with knowledge. It is not a speculative thing, for faith believes facts of which it is sure. It is not an impractical, dreamy thing, for faith stakes its eternal destiny upon the truth of revelation. Faith ventures its all upon the truth of God.”
Tomorrow morning, we are meeting as men at 8am to consider how God wants to strengthen our faith in him. As faith goes up, so does dependence. The more we trust, the more we lean on all that God is for us in Christ.
In keeping with our theme for the men’s meetings this year, Progress and Joy in the Faith, we are going to consider faith. Venturing all upon the truth of God is the kind of progress that is most difficult, but by far the most satisfying. Guys, I hope you are able to make it. Feel free to bring a friend and any of your older sons. I’ll see you there.
