Faith in God’s Way

Some things in life are hard to figure out. In the post Servant Leader, I wrote that Jesus teaches about the servant type of leadership during His last meal with the disciples. Faith is a great quality when leading others as a parent, teacher, boss, or any other leader. Through reading the Bible, experiences of life, and sharing with others, our faith grows stronger. It is a valued possession that allows us to accomplish much more in life.

Our faith comes from high places where God is and connects to us. The invisible qualities of faith can’t be overtaken; even at death, these qualities are valued possessions so go, taste and see the goodness of God.

Remember that the life we are living on earth is just the beginning and it passes in a blink of an eye. Watch this video and be inspired by the story made to music of a daughter who loses her Dad. It emphasizes the fact that death is just the beginning and we will see our lost loved ones in due time: Glorious Unfolding – Steven Curtis Chapman. 

So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in Him, rooted and built up in Him, strengthened in faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness. – Colossians 2:6-7
