Message from Renee Trapp, Business Manager


“Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.” Hebrews 11:1

Are you afraid that your faith is too weak? Afraid that God could not possibly accept a faith such as yours—so weak, so wavering, so full of doubts and misgivings?

Then dismiss your fears. God’s salvation is not dependent upon the quality of the faith that receives it. A million dollar check is worth a million dollars whether it is held in the uncertain hand of a kindergartner, in the wavering hand of an invalid, or in the strong, firm grasp of a business manager.

We are not saved because our faith is strong, nor are we lost because our faith is weak. Else we would never know if our faith is strong enough, if we believed deeply enough, or if we trusted firmly enough. No, we are saved because God in His mercy chose us to be His own; we are saved because God in His mercy gave His only begotten Son into death to redeem us.

Upon that fact, and upon that fact alone, we rely. Not upon the strength or weakness of our faith. We ask not: How strong is my faith, but how great is God’s love? Not, how strong is my faith, but how great is Christ’s redemption? God’s love and Christ’s redemption are great enough and strong enough to save even those of weakest faith.

Let us, then, get rid of all doubts and misgivings. Let us thank God that in His mercy He has assured us that even a weak faith saves!
