Are you a Luke Faithwalker? Or a Luke Sightwalker?

    Corny? I suppose. But how much of our faith comes from what we see and experience? And how much comes from the word of God alone? Sight faith prompts people to buy cars and foods they believe will live up to the claims. But Jesus didn’t commit himself to many who believed in him for the same reasons. They believed because of the miracles they saw. But bible faith is different. It is a fruit of the Holy Spirit that comes from hearing God’s word in the heart.

    So how much of what we believe is from the heart? And how much is in our head? If we can prove what we believe comes from scripture, it is heart faith. But if we cannot, it is merely head faith until proven otherwise.

    Where will we be if all the visual stimuli evaporates? And we have only what is in our hearts? Is there be enough to keep you going? Nothing to cling to but the few verses you managed to remember? This is where the test of faith remains after the rest comes crashing down around us in life or in our final days and hours.

    1 Corinthians 15:1-4, Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures.

    Blessings in Christ Jesus! I am a man of no account. I consider myself the least worthy, in all the earth for the measure of Grace I have been given. Even if The Lord decided to take my eyes(my sight) The Word of God would still proceed from my lips, for that is His will for me. For it is by His Power, and His Spirit that this is possible.And by The Gift of Faith, I know that this will not end, until I have finished the race that is set before me. So you see Dave, what is written does not fade away in time, but is alive forevermore in those who are truly born from above. You can say this is not possible, and you can say that this is not true, and yet here I am.

    I can only say, that are not the first and will not be the last to state that you are a man of no account, happens to all who stand before Christ and realize what they are and who He is, of course than once you realize who you are in Him, its a completely different ball game.

    Welcome

    A mountain of extraordinary experiences weighs less than an ounce of inspired scripture.

    NOTHING obtained through the senses has ANY reliability, AT ALL!!

    It is my sense of sight that enables me to read the word of the Lord; and it is my sense of hearing that enables me to hear the preacher preach.

    To say the things you typically say, something is failing you
