“Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen” Heb. 11:1.
Perfect sight is defined in the medical world as having 20/20 vision. As we enter the New Year – 2020 – in our youth ministry classrooms, we won’t be striving for elusive perfection. However, we will strive for clarity of vision. What better way to polish up our spiritual lenses than by focusing on our inherent spiritual powers? The month of January will lead us into this exploration as we examine our Power of Faith.
Viewed with our fresh, clean spiritual eyes, the Power of Faith is an active power. Accordingly, as described by Unity co-founder, Charles Fillmore, faith is the “perceiving” power, the faculty to see what is not yet apparent with steadfast belief in its existence. Faith is the power that allows us to see creative possibilities before there is evidence of its manifestation.
In our youth ministry classrooms, we will be examining the dynamic faith that flows through our every action, thought, and prayer. We will be examining the difference between rightly expressing the creative power of faith that is within you and having faith in something that is outside of you.
Faith is always active in the things we think, feel, say, or do. By choosing how we use or direct the Power of Faith, we create and express the good that is our birthright.
We are excited about the year ahead! Please check this space each month, and take this eye-opening journey with us.
