Faith is ImPortent

Hello. Human beings are made, created, formed - to have faith. It is an essential quality for our lives.

Faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.
Faith goes together with hope, and love.
Faith is a gift.
Faith receives all the benefits of God's kindness towards us, in Jesus Christ.
Faith is like trust.
Faith is based upon the fact, revealed to us, by faith, that God is a Faithful Creator, who can be trusted.
Faith is informed by the Spirit of God.
Faith is a miracle worked in our hearts, by God, in kindness.

A Portent is a sign, an amazing sign. Or a wonderful, wonder.

When people have faith, in God, something is imparted into, and thus imported into, their lives.
This faith - resting in the goodness, and merit of Christ, who deals once and for all with our sin and guilt - is sign of true life.

People of faith, whom I know, have a profound deep assurance about life, and the future.
Are you a person of faith? If not, seek the Living Christ Jesus.
