Faith is


"Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen." ( Hebrews 1:11)
 
“Faith is not primarily a function of how you feel. Faith is living out and believing what truth is despite what you feel.” -  Timothy Keller​

On speaking of his long-time guide dog, Randy Quinn said the following: "If I say I'm going to the bank, or I'm going to pay the light bill, she knows where to go and knows how to get back home."

Here is the take-away: Faith is as much experiential and relational as it is intellectual. The order one comes to faith might be through any one of those avenues, but you need all three in order to keep faith alive.
