What's Up With Faith?

It's been a long, long, long time since we've updated this blog.  Sorry!  Better late than never, right?  Well, that remains to be seen...but thanks for reading this anyway!

In Crossroads we are in the beginning of a new series about the word "faith" in the New Testament.  We have seen that the English words "faith," "belief," and "trust" all come from the same Greek word.  And, in my opinion at least, "trust" is almost always the best option.

We're going to see that the faith that is found in the New Testament has more to do with following Jesus than it does with things that we merely affirm in our heads.  Faith is proactive.  Faith requires intentionality.  Faith doesn't require good works but it always inspires them.  Real faith is always lived out.

So, as we go through this series together, our prayer will be like the words found in Mark 9.24 -- "I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief!"

See you soon!
