How can we foster genuine, enduring faith in the young people within our spheres of influence?
God is our ultimate Source of faith. But often He provides it through other people.
It sounds obvious, yet sometimes we seem to forget. We get caught up in work, routines, and family duties and relegate friendship to luxury status. Or we get plunged into pain or struggle and try to soldier on alone. We think we have to do it, that our burdens are ours alone to carry, that no one can ever understand, that no one should ever have to share our struggle.
The Christian life is so much more than that one decision followed by a waiting game until eternity gets here. Faith is so much more an idea, a ticket we tote around until we get to Heaven’s gate and present it for admittance.
