Proving faith
I cannot pass my faith on to others
as a doctor injects a patient with serum.
I cannot pass my faith on to others
as a service-station attendant fills a car with petrol.
I cannot pass my faith on to others
as wharf-labourers move cargo from one ship to another with cranes.
I cannot provide a pill that produces faith when it is swallowed.
I cannot explain my faith as a teacher explains a mathematical formula.
I cannot demonstrate my faith as a clever lawyer demonstrates the innocence of the accused to a sceptical judge.
I can only prove my faith by letting Christ heal my entangled, sinful life.
I can only prove my faith by praying for others, as Christ prayed for Peter and others.
I can only prove my faith by doing loving deeds to others, even as Christ revealed his love to the sick and hungry.
I can only prove my faith by being ready to forgive and forget the evil words and deeds of others, even as Christ forgave His enemies on the cross.
I can only prove my faith by being prepared to suffer for others, even as Christ suffered for others.
I can only prove my faith by not letting my failures deflect me from my calling, even as Christ could not be deflected from His course by the people’s unbelief.
I can only prove my faith through the power of the Holy Spirit, given by Christ.
