Professing faith is a lifelong response to the call of God, gift of grace and inclusion in the church as the body of Christ and witness to the coming kingdom of God. But, what is faith?* Faith is the basic orientation and commitment of our whole being - a matter of heart and soul.* Faith is grounding our lives in the living God as revealed especially in Jesus Christ. It's both a gift we receive within the Christian community and a choice we make. * Faith is trusting in God and relying on God as the source and destiny of our lives. * Faith is believing in God, giving God our devoted loyalty and allegiance.* Faith is following Jesus, answering the call to be his disciples in the world. * Faith is hoping for God's future, leaning into the coming kingdom that God has promised.Read and reflect on the Parable of the Unjust Judge in Luke 18:1-8. After telling his disciples this story, Jesus asks, "When the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on earth?" (Luke 18:8) Will he?
