Does Faith make sense?

faith

Remember the word of the prophet, if a watchman sees the iniquity of a man and does not declare it, he shall be guilty for a lost soul.  Therefore do not be silent but speak the truth in love.

For many, faith is what makes sense.  If it does not make sense to their rational minds then it can’t be from God or it can’t be good.

May I ask you then, How does it make sense for Abraham to obey to offer his son Issac on the Altar?  How does it make sense for Caleb and Joshua to believe that God will give them the promised land, when Giants were roaming the land?  How does it make sense for Gideon to defeat Israel’s enemies with 300 people?  How does it make any sense for David to dare fight the Giant Goliath?

My brethren, our faith should go beyond our rational thinking if it is to be faith in God.

Matthew 5:20  For I say unto you that unless your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the Kingdom of Heaven.

Matthew 17: 19-20   Then the disciples came to Jesus privately and said, “Why could we not cast it out?”  20 So Jesus said to them, “Because of your unbelief; for assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you.
