“You love him even though you have never seen him. Though you do not see him now, you trust him; and you rejoice with a glorious, inexpressible joy. The reward for trusting him will be the salvation of your souls.” 1 Peter 1:8-9 NLT
That as believers in Jesus Christ we love and trust someone we have never seen makes no sense to the world. We read about Him...we talk about Him...we try and model His life...we even talk to Him. Yet, we have never seen Him. It's all kind of incredible when you realize you have a connection with someone who has literally changed your life and you've never laid eyes on Him.
The truth is we do see Him. We see him through the eyes of our hearts...the eyes of faith. “Faith shows the reality of what we hope for; it is the evidence of things we cannot see. Through their faith, the people in days of old earned a good reputation. By faith we understand that the entire universe was formed at God’s command, that what we now see did not come from anything that can be seen.” Hebrews 11:1-3 NLT
Experience the glorious, inexpressible joy of walking by faith and not by sight, all because you love Him and trust Him.
