Through their faith, the people in days of old earned a good reputation. Hebrews 11:2
Faith sometimes gets a bad rap. Some see it as the wild and irresponsible. And some people do do some strange things which they say is ‘faith’, but is really an untested wild idea, a lazy reliance on other people’s hard work and generosity, or a cover-up for not having any idea what they are doing!
However, never throw out the substance because of an over-enthusiastic few.
Hebrews 11:2 tells us that your reputation is connected to your faith, not your ability to be conservative, always sensible, always calculated, always reasonable or controlled. Faith is bold, faith is confidence, faith dares, faith believes for what’s missing and steps out anyway.
Go to your God-confidence today. Go to a place of faith. Believe God more than your own ability. Believe the Bible more than your own judgement. Believe what God says about you more than what others may say about you. Step outside of yourself and into the ‘faith-you’. Your reputation depends on it!
See you in Church.
