When we think of Christian faith we often think of those heroes past and present whose lives reflect the courage and fortitude needed to stand up for Christ in the face of an opposite world. We recall their drive, experiences and actions and feel inspired. Then we look at our own lives, and it is at this point that we can often get totally depressed! Where is the passion, the conviction and the heroic stand of MY faith? How is it that life seems to keep getting in MY way, and I don’t always feel or act in accordance with the living faith I see in others? Is there something wrong with me? Is my faith genuine, and if so, then what do I have to do to put it in its rightful place regarding my daily life experiences? Is it even possible for me to become a “hero of faith” even in a small way? How do I relight faith?
