More recently, South African theologian and missionary leader Andrew Murray describes faith as a sixth sense. “Just as we have our [five] senses, through which we hold communication with the physical universe, so faith is the spiritual sense or organ through which the soul comes into contact with and is affected by the spiritual world.” Through this spiritual organ, we have the privilege of communing with the mystery and magnificence of God.
As Paul assures us, the marvelous tapestry of faith is threaded with confidence and evidence of the invisible. To be sure, this faith is also threaded with fear, doubt, confusion, and, ultimately, surrender.
As our world becomes more chaotic and uncertain, we are called to be ambassadors of light, love, and faith. Ask yourself: What must I let go of, so that I can lean into faith that is confident and sure?
Sending you love, light, peace, and joy in this holiest of seasons.
