Faith is not trying to believe something regardless of the evidence; faith is daring something regardless of the consequences.
~ Sherwood Eddy
I prayed for faith, and thought that some day faith would come down and strike me like lightning. But faith did not seem to come. One day I read in the tenth chapter of Romans, “Now faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God.” I had closed my Bible, and prayed for faith. I now opened my Bible, and began to study, and faith has been growing ever since.
~ Dwight L Moody
Faith isn’t faith until it’s all you’re holding on to.
~ Patrick Overton
Faith is the Christian’s foundation, hope is his anchor, death is his harbor, Christ is his pilot and Heaven is his country.
~ Jeremy Taylor
Faith today is treated as something that only should make us different, not that actually does or can make us different. In reality we vainly struggle against the evils of this world, waiting to die and go to heaven. Somehow we’ve gotten the idea that the essence of faith is entirely a mental and inward thing.
~ Dallas Willard
I believe in the sun, even when it’s not shining. And I believe in love, even when I don’t feel it. I
believe in God, even when he’s silent.
~ Inscription on the wall in Nazi Germany
Call on God, but row away from the rocks.
~ Indian proverb
If it is true that you know how to describe faith, it only proves that you are a poet, and if you can do it well, it proves that you are a good poet; but this is far from proving that you are a believer. Perhaps you can also weep in describing faith, that would prove then that you are a good actor.
~ Soren Kierkegaard, in For Self-Examination
