My title for this devotion is Faith vs Sight

I know I keep coming back to this topic of faith. Maybe it’s because it is more than a word. It is-in my mind- a word of action.

Let me explain. One of my favorite scenes in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade is the scene where Indy has to perform three acts to get to the cup of Christ. (A penitent man shall pass. The name of God.) The final one is where Indy has to take a step of faith by walking off the ledge onto a then unseen bridge. When he finally shuts his eyes and trusts his step of faith, he steps onto a bridge. His step of faith was rewarded.

Faith is an action word and an active word. This past week I have turned back the clock on my music. I spent some time listening to Mylon Lefevre, Kenny Marks, and Steve Camp. Steve has a song whose title goes by a line in the song: “Don’t tell them Jesus loves them ‘till you’re ready to love them too.” Faith should always have feet.

We may not “see” what a step of faith might bring. (I’m guessing if we did we might not take that step).  🙂  But step we must if we want to follow God’s directives in our life.

“Father, I’m not always eager to step out in faith. Sometimes I’m too pragmatic and want to know the result. But not always is that your way. Help me overcome any fear or hesitancy I have and take that step of faith.”

  1. “Faith should always have feet.”
    Absolutely, Bill! I agree that faith is an action word, and we must live it out boldly each and every day.

    Yep. Faith without works is dead…

    It’s easy to talk the talk, but walking it is a whole other matter.
