FAITH

Everyone lives by faith to a certain extent. When you go to a doctor, you need faith to trust his diagnosis. When the pharmacy fills your prescription, you have faith that you'll receive the appropriate medicine. When you eat at a restaurant, you trust that the people serving you have not contaminated or poisoned the food. Every day is a walk of faith on some level. Everyone believes in something. "God has dealt to each one a measure of faith." (Romans 12:3)
.
We choose what we believe in. Some people choose to believe in themselves, some in government, some in evil, some in science, some in newspaper, some in hard work, some in other people, and some in God. I believe that the only person who didn't believe in anything ended up in a mental hospital because it droves him crazy. Faith is something we can't live without.
.
Faith is something we can't die without either. Our faith determines what happens to us after we leave this world. If you have faith in Jesus, you know that your eternal future is secure. "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosover believes in Him will not perish but have everlasting life." (John 3:16) Having certainty about what happens to us when we die will greatly affect how we live today.Our faith will help determine our future. Place your faith in God today.
