Faith: it’s what bridges the gap between what we cannot see, and yet still believe. Faith is what makes a relationship with God possible. It’s an all-surrendering, all-consuming acknowledgment that the Lord your God is not only with you, but within you, and His ways are higher than your own.
Faith is one of those things that when you try to explain it to someone, you just might sound crazy. That’s because, to have faith in anything, you have to be just a little crazy.
Jesus himself told us that if we have faith the size of a mustard seed, we can move mountains (Matthew 17:20). Y’all, that’s just crazy!!
But if being crazy, and believing what God says over what popular opinion and common sense says means that I get to have a relationship with the Lord and experience Him…SIGN ME UP!
Faith quotes are literally that — quotes about faith that have been passed down from theologians, scholars, pastors, neighbors and everyday people like you and me. Faith quotes explain what we may not be able to, and they can help bring clarity to our crazy.
Whether your faith is new and fresh, or stronger than ever before, you can count on these 30 faith quotes to get you through the week.
