November 8

“Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.” Hebrews 11:1 (NIV)

It is critically important on this election day in the United States that we who follow Christ affirm that the Christian life is a life of faith. We remember that the 11th chapter of Hebrews is called the “faith chapter.” The Christian life is not based on wishful thinking. Actually that is what many people mean when they say, “Well, I hope everything will be alright.” When they say the hope for something they are really just wishing that it might be so. In the Christian life, however, hope is an expectation based on God’s promises. And as we look forward we know that God has promised many things and, we can be sure that He will keep His word. We may not see it now but we can be certain about it. That’s what faith is.
