‘And now these three remain: faith, hope and love’ writes the apostle Paul in his letter to the Corinthians. The book of 1 Corinthians was written to the church in the ancient city of Corinth, Greece during a time of prosperity. This led to significant change in the culture and community. Through this mini-series we’ll be exploring three biblical values to guide our actions, thoughts and words as we navigate this next season; faith, hope and love.
These Three Remain: Faith
1 Corinthians 13:13
What am I putting my faith in? How would it feel to be valued for my faith rather than my work? Faith is having complete trust and confidence in someone or something. When it comes to God, faith means trusting what He says about us is true - believing that by sending Jesus to die on the cross we can experience a full relationship with Him because our sins have been forgiven unconditionally. The Christian faith therefore allows us to experience complete freedom in life, rather than ‘just a set of rules’. Faith is a free gift and is on offer to all, it’s the first stop on the road when it comes to life changing transformation.
