Faith is one of the fundamental elements of our Christian lives. It is by faith that we are saved, justified, and cleansed. Faith is how we please God, admit our reliance on Him, and incessantly rely on His grace and mercy.
Faith helps us to evaluate the present through the light of eternity by giving us the courage to trust. Faith does not free us from living in the world. Itdoes not exempt us from the trials or tribulations of the world, but it does bring a realization that there is more to life than earthly matters. When we have sound conviction about the spiritual world, then we began to develop a perspective that would allow us to begin enjoying eternal life with God right now.
