To be a human is to be a believer. We differ in what we believe, and in the intensity of our beliefs, but we insist on believing in something. Life simply cannot exist without some such basis. These beliefs become the set-of-sails that determine the direction of our lives and our destination. And also, of course, the nature and quality of our journey.
What I want to point out today is the “whom” we believe in. Every belief has a central focus. The issue—-and it is the issue—in what we believe. For Christians, more specifically, Jesus is the “whom” that we believe in. This makes our belief stand strong and sure in uncertain times.
