When the Son of Man comes, will He really find faith on the earth?
At the end of his teaching, he asked if there were questions or comments. I chose not to add my comments to yesterday's post because I really wanted what he said to stand on its own because it is that good. What I added in class was:
The word faith is not merely an intellectual knowledge of something. It is not the belief that something exists. Faith speaks to fidelity and faithfulness. It stands when nothing else does.
God is not Santa Clause, and our prayers should not be our wish list we expect Him to grant. Prayer is communication and conversation. It is building a relationship. Faith stands even when the relationship is hard and even when the answers are not what we want.
For me, the question, "When the Son of Man comes, will He really find faith on earth?" asks a simple question:
Are you faithful to a relationship with me, or do you simply want what I can give you,
and if you don't get what you want, will you walk away?
Because if you can just walk away, you don't have faith, and when the Son of Man comes, where does that leave you?
