Have Faith This Week
Sometimes it is hard to have faith in God. But what else could be more important? It is our faith in Jesus Christ that everything revolves around. Here is some scripture to get us into perspective.
[Peace with God Through Faith]
[5:1] Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.  Through him we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in hope of the glory of God.  Not only that, but we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance,  and endurance produces character, and character produces hope,  and hope does not put us to shame, because God's love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.
(Romans 5:1-5 ESV). Wow, we can have peace with God, even in our suffering. All we have to do is have faith!
[11:1] Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.  For by it the people of old received their commendation.  By faith we understand that the universe was created by the word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things that are visible.
(Hebrews 11:1-3 ESV). All of Romans 11 is an example of faith that we have seen in different people in the bible.
