Faith is the key to unlocking all the richness and blessings of the covenant;
Faith that he is a good God who loves us;
Faith that we can trust him with our lives;
Faith that he will never turn his back on us;
Faith that he will forgive us;
Faith that his deepest desire is to help us in every possible way to make his ways our ways.
These are not talking about passive faith. They are not talking about the kind of faith that is content just to go to church once a week and not seek the Lord anywhere else. No, they are talking about a faith that pursues God with persistence and dedication. May we all pursue the Lord with earnest, persistent faith.
