I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave Himself for me. (Gal 2:20)
That verse could carry you for a lifetime, couldn't it?

We have a couple of threads discussing faith, but I can't help but focus on the Source, and not only the grace He gives so that we might believe, but the foundation of hope when all else in us has expired - His faith.

So many times in our lives, we seem to loose our grip on His promise because the fire is just too hot: though He never leaves us, our strength runs out and then in our weakness - He is strong.

Have there been times in your life when you knew (or maybe you didn't until you looked back) that it was not your faith or hope, but His very life within you that was sustaining you?

Praise His holy name...

Yes! Very nice post elmer. I totally agree. It is not our faith that does anything but the faith Jesus possessed...which was given to him by God.

Nothing to boast about in ourselves that is for sure. We are the vessel and God fills us up.

...and to this I say, "Amen, and amen."
