Faith 3

You can do very little with faith, but you can do  nothing without it. (Nicholas Murray Butler, American educator and Nobel Peace Prize winner)

The British writer, C. S. Lewis, put it another way: “True faith is never found alone; it is accompanied by expectation.” Hope-so-faith is of little value; you don’t really expect anything to happen. Genuine faith, the kind God offers in his Word, is placed in the One who never fails, so the believer’s hope is always expecting God to keep his promises.

Let us hold tightly without wavering to the hope we affirm, for God can be trusted to keep his promise. (Hebrews 10:23)
