It's Not Blind Faith

[Romans 10:17]
You aren’t going to just wake up some day and have faith in God. Think of it like this: you wouldn’t have decided to marry your husband or wife after one date. It would be foolish to give your heart to someone that you barely know. Before you can fully trust someone with your heart, you want to have a good idea of their character and who they are. Can they be trusted? Well, you won’t know until you spend time with them and get to know them. It is the same way with God. Faith comes by spending time with God and getting to know Him – His character, His plan of salvation, His love. God wants us to come to know Him, so He has made it quite simple to do so. Everything He ever wanted to tell you about Himself is in the Bible. To get to know Him, you have to read it. At first, you might not understand everything you read – which is why it is important to find a church that teaches through the Bible and holds high not the rituals of faith, but a relationship with God – getting to your heart. As you continue to wholeheartedly try and find out about God, the more and more and more He will reveal to you.
