In an era laced with worry about the present and cynicism about the future, in a climate in which we’ve grown tired of hoping for miracles and wary of trumped-up claims that only disappoint, comes a confident reminder that God has not fallen asleep. He has not forgotten his people nor retreated into semi-retirement.
On the contrary, he is ready to respond to real faith wherever he finds it. Pastor Jim Cymbala insists that faith is more than mental assent to some core beliefs. Fresh faith is not a magic formula that operates by believing hard and long enough to get what you want from God. Neither does it involve obeying a set of rules and laws so that you can struggle your way to faith. Rather, authentic, biblical faith is simple, honest, and utterly dependent upon God, a faith capable of transforming your life, your church, and the nation itself.
