"Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen" (Hebrews 11:1)
Faith too often is identified as a "church word". In essence it simply means to have confidence in someone or something.
Stop for a moment and consider your spiritual faith. As you do, ask yourself this question; "What does my faith look like?
The Bible and history gives some ideas of other's faith. Biblical and historical figures such as Stephen, Andrew, Simon Peter and Paul, John Huss, William Tyndall, Rachael Scott, Cassie Bernal, and Stacey Baylan; all who "stood" for their faith.
Now for a difficult question; What can you and your faith stand for? Is it easier to die for your faith or live for your faith? (This is by no means to take away from these above mentioned martyrs and spiritual warriors) Conversely, What do you think is the hardest; to live for your faith or to die for your faith? I think, I think, before you can die for your faith you have to live for your faith. To consistently reject the temptation to back up, slow up, or give up. To daily live as if this were your last day. To surrender yourself to an eternal future unseen and untried, yet to remain confident in the final result.
In one sense, we are all called to die daily for that which spiritually holds us. To be willing to die for HIM, yet also willing to live for HIM. So, live for HIM today as if you were going to die for HIM today. I think if you live this way, you will know just what your faith looks like!
