Faith, Hope, and Luck
Faith, Hope, and Luck: Part 1 - Better Odds
How does faith work? What does it mean to have faith? What does it mean to lose faith? Does it still count if our faith wavers? What is our faith supposed to be in? Something beyond us? Our circumstances? Ourselves? Our faith is built on something. What should it be built on?
The foundation of our faith is a person—not an experience, and not faith itself—that person is Jesus.
Our faith in God often hinges on His activity—or inactivity—in our life circumstances. When our prayers are answered, our faith soars; but when He’s silent, it becomes harder to trust Him. When He shows up in an unmistakable way, our confidence in Him reaches new heights; but when He doesn’t show up, our confidence often wanes. It doesn't have to be that way. It’s not supposed to be that way.
This 5-part series is designed to transform our thinking about faith. We’ll discover the difference between faith and hope. We’ll be presented with a definition for faith and figure out what we can expect of God every time we come to Him with a request. We’ll also expose some flaws in modern-day “faith” movements.
