I Corinthians 2.10 (CEB)
God has revealed these things to us through the Spirit. The Spirit searches everything, including the depths of God.
As a kid, I always wanted a bike. And not just any bike, but a truly special one. One day my mom and dad took me to get my first bike. Looking carefully over the racks, I pointed to the one I wanted; a Huffy Wrangler. A tan bicycle with brown banana seat, front and rear fenders, and a depiction of a lasso on the chain guard. And while I loved this bike, both mom and dad reminded me those banana seats where not as popular as they once were. Nonetheless, I was certain this was my bike.
We often want for all things we do or have to be certain and popular. Yet sometimes the faith that we
affirm moves us to new and different places that are not always well received. The love that we have for God and one another is always being shaped by our scriptures, prayers, and trust in the Holy Spirit. The freedom that we silently affirm allows us all to come to our own conclusion. The popular thing to do is to tell people what to believe, as if all things are already settled and we already agree on the subject. Yet the actuality is that we have as much to learn as we have to say.
We trust that God’s will will ultimately be known and lived in us all. Being a Christian means that we believe that God guides us, loves us, creates peace, and brings us together. Popularity is not our aim, faithing is.
