UpStreet June Virtue: Faith
We’ve spent June in UpStreet talking about faith. Faith is trusting in what you can’t see because of what you can see.
If you look around you, you can see all kinds of evidence that will convince you that there is a God who is someone you can put your trust in. One example is creation. Another example is the stories of people who believe and trust in God.
In the book of Hebrews, the author is writing to people who trusted and believed in God, but whose faith is beginning to dwindle.
The author starts to write about the stories of people in the past and how they trusted God—stories of people who saw God’s promises come true. The writer says that, because of the faith of the people in the past, the people in the present should believe as well.
Through the stories of the past, our faith can also be recharged. Visit the 252 web site to learn more about faith.
