Definition of Faith

We express faith in something every moment of our lives.  When we sit down, we have faith that the chair will hold us even though we aren't sure what holds the chair together and causes it to support our weight.  We have faith that our heart will continue beating even though we don't know what causes it to keep beating - we know it always has.

There are many things in life that we can't see but we believe that they exist.  So often, what we see are the effects of something.  The wind can't be seen but we see leaves and dust swept up by it and we see destruction that follows strong wind.  We know that the wind is there because it effects our life.  Denying the existence of the wind doesn't prevent it from effecting us.

Although we cannot see God, we have faith in Him and can be certain of His existence.  The evidence lies all around us.  Romans 1 tells us that all of creation is a testament to God.  In other words, people must look around and acknowledge that there must be a Creator.  Even the most adamant proponents of the Big Bang and evolution can't offer an explanation for where the chemicals came from that mixed together to create the universe and life.  Even they needed a Creator.

Christians have more evidence than just creation however.  We see the way God answers prayers and the way lives are changed by people who put their faith in Christ.
