Psalm 25.15-22, Job 17.1-16, John 7.14-31 - Lectionary for 2/22/11

Today's readings are Psalm 25.15-22, Job 17.1-16, and John 7.14-31.

We look to our God in faith. But is that faith a step in the dark? Does it mean that we are blindly trusting in something that may or may not be true? The Christian faith has often been characterized that way in recent generations. But a genuinely biblical view of faith says that faith is a certain hope in God's promises based not on our impressions but on the many proofs God has given of the validity of our faith. We look to Jesus, who has proven himself to have power even over life and death.

Our faith is a walk in the light of Jesus self-revelation. Let us look to him in faith and trust, knowing that he has done what he said he would do.
