"Without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that HE IS and that He is a rewarder of those who seek Him." Hebrews 11:6
Unless we actually believe in God, His son, and the Resurrection, our attempts at trusting in God are only wishful thinking. It is my prayer that those who are seeking a closer relationship with the Lord will move from the sphere of "I hope He's out there listening" to a solid knowledge of Him.
It is also my prayer that those who already have a solid knowledge of Him but got consumed with agendas and busyness will come back. Jesus Christ has already spoken to this, knowing that this is something that we all will face. "I also know that you are patiently enduring and bearing up for the sake of my name, and that you have not grown weary. But I have this against you, that you have abandoned the love you had at first." Revelation 2:3-4
Wow! What a loving God we have who has already spoken and advised us on all we will face in this world.
