Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he shall not enter therein.
Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

Mark 10:15; Proverbs 3:5-6

Is faith a leap in the dark?
No, faith is not a leap in the dark! However, faith must be on firm facts and credible witnesses for God. However, these must be examined and accepted by whoever wishes to obtain salvation. No-one will ever be able to accuse God of not giving clear evidence of His experience.
It must be admitted, on the other hand, that our own minds can never fully grasp who God is. Logical argumentation would never convince us; therefore God addresses our hearts as much as our minds through the Bible. Just as a child trusts his father’s explanations, we, too, have to accept in all simplicity what God has revealed. Salvation can be understood by an act in which our conscience, our will and our affections are involved.
In the sight of those who are lost, faith in the crucified Christ is foolishness. For the believer, however, it is a certainty that imparts freedom by convincing the heart.
Now faith does not save because it is so harmonious, or logical or attractive or even convincing. Faith saves because it is God’s ordinance. God wishes all to be saved; therefore He commands all to repent (cf. 1 Timothy 2:4; Acts 17:30). Whoever refuses to believe in Him, change his way of life or turn to God, is in fact disobedient towards God.
Today’s reading: 2 Samuel 7
