Only what is done for the good of others will matter in the end. On what basis are we to have this radical love? God helps us to have that hope and he gives us great examples of people who had great faith. Faith is what links hope and give power to radical obedience.
Faith is the assurance of things hope for, that is what will make a difference in this life. It is based on what we do here on earth. What we spend our time and money on. If we were to look at creation we will see the finger print of God. Faith is the evidence of things not seen. No one should be able to talk us out of our faith. We need to do what we do as disciples because we know what is to come. The audacity of faith is not about wishful thinking, it’s based on what we know that is awaiting us.
