Faith involves trust, but it also has an active component. It means putting one foot in front of the other. Jesus was determined to go to Jerusalem, and acting out his faith meant putting one foot in front of another to reach his destination despite the warnings that Herod wanted to kill him. (Luke 13:31 – 35) Abraham and Sarah’s faith meant taking one step after another, leaving behind what was familiar to go to the unseen land promised to them by God.
What does putting one step in front of another in faith mean for us today?
