What is faith? For many faith is merely an intellectual assent to something that is believed to be true. However, faith is so much more—it is the full submission of both our intellect and will to God who personally reveals himself to us as he proposes to us his plan for our lives. Therefore, faith and life can never be separated, but our lives should shine forth as a compelling witness to Christ.
