I Peter 1:8-9 ” Though you have not seen Him, you love Him; and even though you do not see Him now, you believe in Him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy, for you are receiving the goal of your faith, the salvation of your souls.”

The world can’t comprehend the meaning of the Scriptures above, let alone how a intelligent person could put their faith in something they can’t see or touch. But Believers around the world would beg to differ. Yes, we are a peculiar people… our blind devotion may seem curious, our confidence based only on the invisible is rather strange…but the biggest oddity is the joy we derive from it all…the world finds this really weird. But it’s that unspeakable joy of knowing we’ve been saved from our sins that presses us on in righteousness, which leads to holiness, the result being eternal life. (Romans 6:22) And as the resurrected Jesus told Thomas, “Because you have have seen Me, you have believed; blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.” (John 20:29) The world will always scoff and mock what they don’t understand…but that only means we need to be salt and light in that darkness.
