“The biggest burden on my heart was a problem of worldview: Who is Jesus? … Who is the Jesus who heals some but not others? Who needs a fickle God? Faith is not a feeling. Faith rides the waves of the treachery of life on the Christian worldview that you own. Faith and worldview are intimately intertwined. Our peace, love, courage, longsuffering, and lifeworks, lock-step with our Christian worldview and the faith that undergirds it. Where was mine?” (p. 57).

Reading: Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. —Hebrews 11:1
