Devotion for November 1

Hebrews 11:1

Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.

What we hope for and should be sure of is a certain resurrection. What we do not see is Jesus Christ. Or do we? Jesus is in our hearts, minds, and souls but he can be found in joy and sadness. How we treat others reflects how we feel about Jesus. Faith true faith is trying to rid one’s self from the intolerance of the world. Not abandoning morality but allowing an open dialogue with everyone for the purpose of sharing God’s vision through Jesus Christ. God allows the Holy Spirit to grow in us till we see that vision and our example is Jesus Christ. Therefore we are to be like Christ – or Christ-likeĀ – in all we say and do. Challenging yes, near impossible yes, but we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us!
