Holy Curiosity

“Now that I am a Christian, I have moods in which the entire thing looks very improbable; but when I was an atheist, I had moods in which Christianity looked terribly probable.” –C.S. Lewis

Being sound Christians does not mean that we won’t have questions.  On the contrary, we may have a lot of questions that don’t come with easy answers.  A dose of doubt is entirely healthy in our faith journeys, because it is the testing of our beliefs against our experiences that makes them deeper and more meaningful. While we may never fully understand God, when we look to the heavens with a holy curiosity, God looks down on us and smiles. 

These trials will show that your faith is genuine. It is being tested as fire tests and purifies gold—through your faith is far more precious than mere gold.  So when your faith remains strong through many trials, it will bring you much praise and glory and honor on the day when Jesus Christ is revealed to the whole world (1 Peter 1:7, NLT).
