And Jesus said to him, “Go your way; your faith has made you well.” And immediately he recovered his sight and followed him on the way.

Mark 10:52 ESV

baconBetter with Bacon

Everything tastes better with bacon.  Eggs, turkey sandwiches, club sandwiches, shrimp, chicken, filet, pork tenderloin, hamburgers, cheeseburgers, lettuce and tomato sandwiches, Cobb salad…you name the food item and there is a good chance that it tastes better with bacon.

You could say that bacon is to food what faith is to life. Respectively, they just make things better.

Better with Faith

Faith makes life better.  Check it out:  Faith goes great with prayer, celebrations, mourning, weeping, birthdays, tears, smiles, sharing the gospel…to put it simply, each of these is just better with faith.  Life is better with faith.

prayingRecently, the Lord has been teaching me to live with more faith each day.  How do I do this?  Faith is only as good as the object in which it is placed.  If I have faith in something unstable, my faith is useless. For example, if I have faith that a lake with one centimeter of ice will hold me up, it doesn’t matter how much faith I have, when I step on the lake, I’m getting wet.

The beauty of having faith in the Lord is that he is a strong tower, he presides over the heavens and the earth. God is omnipotent, omnipresent, omniscient.  He is the alpha and the omega.  He is stronger than anything this world can throw at me.  He is my rock and my redeemer.  Jesus rose, conquering death.  What can man do to me?  God has redeemed me from death and will redeem the world.

I’ve read the book and guess how it ends…God wins.  I don’t have faith in myself.  My faith is not even mine, it is a gift from God.  When God’s people live with faith in each aspect of their lives, watch out world!!!

What will you eat today that would go better with bacon?

What part of your life would benefit from adding a big slice of faith to?
