“Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen.”
What is Faith? It’s a funny thing isn’t it? The verse above explains it perfectly. It is a confidence in the hope we have, but it isn’t certainty. Certainty requires no faith. No matter how much evidence we look at for the existence of God (and believe me, the evidence is overwhelming!), we still have to have even a little faith that he exists. No matter how much evidence we look at for the resurrection of Jesus, we still have to have faith that He died and rose again.
