Holding the mystery of faith . . .1 Timothy 3:9
Faith is the eye by which we look to Jesus
A dim-sighted eye is still an eye,
a weeping eye is still an eye.
Faith is the hand with which we lay hold on Jesus.
A trembling hand is still a hand.
And he is a believer whose heart within him trembles
when he touches the hem of the Savior’s garment,
that he may be healed.
Faith is the tongue
by which we taste how good the Lord is.
A feverish tongue is nevertheless a tongue.
And even then we may believe
when we are without the smallest portion of comfort;
for our faith is founded not upon feelings
but on the promises of God.
Faith is the foot by which we go to Jesus.
A lame foot is still a foot.
He who comes slowly nevertheless still comes.
Use your faith . . . Today
