He said, “When it comes to faith …

“When it comes to faith, what a living, creative, active, powerful thing it is. It cannot do other than good at all times. It never waits to ask whether there is some good work to do, rather, before the question is raised, it has done the deed, and keeps on doing it.”  Martin Luther

Faith amazes me.  I don’t mean the simple saying of a prayer, but this bold, audacious belief that God loves me and urges me to act as a member of his family.  The radical thought that we are empowered to act as an agent of God’s love is an amazing gift of faith.  Faith provides the impetus to become a part of a movement of transformation.  It transfers us from an earthly kingdom, to a different kingdom, a force of good in the earth – the kingdom of God.
