Morning: Psalm 25; 2 Chronicles 6:32-7:7; James 2:1-13
Evening: Psalm 9, 15; Mark 14:53-65
They asked Jesus if he was the Messiah. When he replied, “I am”, they were scandalized – he was not the Messiah they had imagined. Similarly, when we “lose faith”, maybe it’s that we no longer believe in the God we had imagined. “Loss of faith” may be a crucial step on the journey of faith. It may be that letting go of mistaken ideas about God opens us up to a larger faith, much different than before, but truer than we could ever have imagined.
