"But you have never heard his voice nor seen his form,
and you do not have his word remaining in you,
because you do not believe in the one whom he has sent."-John 5:37-38

There is a tendency in our society to not believe in what we cannot see.  If something is not right there in front of us, society has taught us to believe that it isn’t real.  We as Christians must be cautious of this idea.  Many non-believers tend to use this argument against us in questioning us on how we could believe in something that we cannot see, touch, or hear.  It is a difficult task for us to believe in the divine, but it is not impossible.  We can take the small hints around us like the beauty of Mother Nature and use them to help us believe in the Lord.  While these hints can help us believe more, they are not enough to fully convince ourselves.  We must have the courage and strength to take a leap of faith.

The leap of faith we take is not easy.  We put our total trust and faith into the unknown.  We must trust in what we cannot see to be our guidance towards everlasting life.  Once we’ve taken this leap of faith we should never look back.  Continue on at full force and don’t ever let another being convince you that you’ve made a mistake.  God is all-loving and he rewards those who take a chance on him and believe with all their hearts.  Let us trust in him and ourselves and we will receive everlasting life.

God Bless.
