How do you explain faith to someone who just doesn`t see it or get it?
Faith is not difficult to explain. It is the simplest thing in the world. (It`s so simple, even young children have faith.) Here`s one way to explain faith. Faith is simply believing something that we don`t actually concretely "see." For example, when you get into an airplane, you believe that the engines will hold the plane up in the air. You believe in aerodynamics even though you might not understand them.

Or, say, if you send a postcard to someone in Swaziland and you`ve never been there nor seen it firsthand, you are believing that there is such a place as Swaziland. But you never personally saw it. You just believe it because you were told or you read about it in books or saw it on TV. Faith is believing. But the difference about faith in Christ and the Bible is that there are many more reasons to believe the Bible is true than there are for flying in an airplane and believing it will remain airborne. There are more reasons to believe in Jesus as the Son of God than could be contained in a book. So, how do you explain that to someone who doesn`t "get it"?

You begin by praying for that person. Then you share parts of the Bible with them (or direct them to JesusCentral.com so they can learn about Jesus). There are also good books that help people grasp faith, such as A Case for Faith by Lee Strobel or More Than A Carpenter by Josh McDowell. In the end, when you`ve prayed for someone, shared Bible truths with them, and directed them to good sources so they can learn more about Jesus, it is their choice whether they want faith or not. If they want faith, they can simply ask God to give them the faith they need to believe. That`s what I did.

I would also encourage someone seeking to understand faith to browse the JesusCentral.com site. It contains rich information and insight.

Faith is believing in something, that you haven't seen yet. It's knowing that every thing is just simply going to be alright. I's finally knowing in your heart that what ever happens, God is in control. Faith Is Peace!! When we have Faith we find peace.

First I would start off by saying that faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen. The words of the Lord, without faith it is impossible to please God. So the question is do yo want to please God if you do this is the way to please him!

Faith is not only a belief in something good but also a 'knowing' inside yourself that what you believe in is right. I believe God knows what is right for me and I trust and have faith that when I pray, I receive the right answer. There are 'zillions' of times when God has answered my prayers. It may not be the answer I want but it's always the answer that is right for me.
