Too Good To Be True?

VERSE:
Though you have not seen him, you love him; and even though you
do not see him now, you believe in him and are filled with an
inexpressible and glorious joy, for you are receiving the goal of
your faith, the salvation of your souls.
-- 1 Peter 1:8-9

THOUGHT:
Can you trust what you don't see? Of course! What kind of
question is that? Our lives depend on what we cannot see -- things
like gravity and the air we breathe, just to name two. Faith in
Jesus is as natural as faith in each of those things. The problem
is that our hearts are skeptical. We find it hard to believe that
anyone divine would love us so much. Our experience says, "If it
seems too good to be true, it is." That skepticism is just the
twisted form of the response God longs to see from us:
"inexpressible and glorious joy." I don't know about you, but I've
tasted both. I prefer joy over skepticism!
