{1 John 1:7, ESV}

But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin.

Faith, in the New Testament, is very seldom acquiescence in a creed, it is almost always trust in a person. Paul does not say, “I know what I have believed.” He says, “I know whom I have believed.” (2 Timothy 1:12). When Jesus called his disciples he did not say to them, “I have a philosophy which I would like you to examine,” or, “I have an ethical system which I would like you to consider,” or, “I offer you a statement of belief I would like you to discuss.” He said, “Follow me.” All Christianity begins with this personal relationship. To be a Christian is to know him personally

William Barclay, The Daily Study Bible: The Letters to the Corinthians, p. 78

Questions to consider:

  • Why is faith more than simple belief?
  • What does it mean to trust Jesus?
  • How have you trusted Jesus with your life?
