Who do you have faith in? Maybe your spouse, your parents, someone you work for? Maybe you have faith in the law, in government, or in your doctors and nurses.
The faith that Peter has for Jesus is such a blessing. That rock on which he will stand is a faith in God, so powerful that it will safeguard Peter for all eternity. Our faith can become stagnant, or it can grow, depending on what we do with our lives and our spirituality.
Working with people returning to the church or coming for the first time, I see a lot of opportunities that were missed in the form of guidance or prayer. And some try to find faith when they haven’t been involved in their faith for years – it’s almost like actually having that child-like spirit because it hasn’t been nurtured and fed. Some fall away because of false information, a lack of education, or just a lack of feeling the necessity for that one true faith.
Come back, come home – His love will never leave you if you just ask him to be with you. God bless you.
