Rough, not Smooth Hands. There is a distinctive quality of faith that is visibly missing in most lives.

Posted: March 4, 2017 in Faith

If you needed a tree cut down and the wood corded, it would make sense to look at the hands of those volunteering to help you. Smooth hands could help with some jobs, but you would want someone with rough hands that showed much difficult labor on them.

Faith can almost look sanitized rather than the kind that is seen in Hebrews 11:32-39. Is this rough kind of faith needed today? Maybe faith is more genuine when exposed to extreme challenging situations rather than some of the things that mark our prayers.

WHAT THIS MEANS: Examine your faith and then sit down with a couple of people in your church or small group and discuss what it would take to have a faith that not only challenges the status quo, but also stirs something in people to believe God for crazy hard stuff.
