"Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen" (Hebrews 11:1).

Faith is an integral part of every Christian's life. It's with faith that we overcome trials, it's with faith that we look ahead to our future, and it's with faith that we withstand our enemy. Learn more about this essential Christian characteristic and how you can develop it by checking out our resources on "Faith" below.

A blog post by Janet Treadway

"It might be tough, but my dad used to say, tough times don't last—tough people do." Those words were spoken by James Robertson, 56, of Detroit as he talked about his daily commute to work. Robertson's daily commute is probably much different from mine or yours. I know my commute to work only takes five minutes of a nice warm car ride in the winter and a nice cool car ride in the summer. Not so with James! His car broke down in 2005, and because he couldn't afford another or the insurance, he decided to walk.

"These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off were assured of them, embraced them and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth. For those who say such things declare plainly that they seek a homeland. And truly if they had called to mind that country from which they had come out, they would have had opportunity to return. But now they desire a better, that is, a heavenly country. Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God, for He has prepared a city for them" (Hebrews 11:13-16).

I don't know about you, but in my life I hope for the godly desires of my heart to become reality. Notice I said "godly" desires. We can all agree that some of the desires that come out of our hearts can leave us and others all messed up. When I read Psalm 37:4: "Take delight in the LORD, and He will give you the desires of your heart," I take that as a promise from our Creator!

Recently I hit the "six-zero." I had been dreading it for months. The reality sunk in that I have lived most of my life! Even if I lived to my eighties, that is but a vapor as I see time speeding along.

“We used to look up in the sky and wonder at our place in the stars, and now we just look down and worry about our place in the dirt.”—Interstellar main character Cooper.

Is there any more wide a chasm separating two distinctly contrasting perspectives in the human condition than that?

You Can Have Living Faith

You Can Have Living Faith

Our world is experiencing a crisis of faith. Few people place much faith in the future. Many have no faith their marriages will survive, that political leaders will honorably serve their country or that education will prepare them adequately for the challenges ahead. Faced with the difficulties of everyday life, many people simply have no confidence that there will be a better tomorrow.
