Faith assures us of things we expect and convinces us of the existence of things we cannot see. Hebrews 11:1
As I grow older I am learning the precious intrinsic value of this faith I have been given.
Your faith is more precious than gold… 1 Peter 1:7
A gift of God.
Faith hears Jesus speak and believes.
Fallen reason and logic question, and persist in unbelief.
In the beginning God created…Genesis 1:1
Sin came into the world through one person, and death came through sin. So death spread to everyone, because everyone sinned. Romans 5:12

Christ died for us while we were still sinners. This demonstrates God’s love for us. Romans 5:8
God saved you through faith as an act of kindness. You had nothing to do with it. Being saved is a gift from God. It’s not the result of anything you’ve done, so no one can brag about it. God has made us what we are. He has created us in Christ Jesus to live lives filled with good works that he has prepared for us to do. Ephesians 2:8-10
They will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of the sky, with power and great glory. Matthew 24:30
Oh Father…what a gift you have given! Only gifts of the divine can appear to be worthless, but in essence are of more valuable than any earthly treasure! Thank you, Jesus, that I believe! Amen.
