Working Things Out

Today, at work, as I was going through my section of House and Home books )scanning for returns to be sent back to the publishers) I found myself thinking about the things I read in Book of Concord. And I made a connection. I have faith in God and I believe that Jesus Christ is my Lord and Saviour. Now, then, I have faith in that faith that what I believe is true and that I'll someday, be in Heaven. I call it "having faith in my faith." I think all Christians, in their own way have to have faith in their faith. It THAT faith, the "secondary faith," if you will, that seems to trip me up the most and I think it is that secondary faith that causes most of the divisions in Christianity. That secondary faith, at least for me is that little voice in there somewhere that asks "is it enough?" Its the one that says "you know, you can't get something for nothin'." Its that little seed of doubt that I have to continually put some spiritual herbicide on. Reading the BoC has been good for me. It has given me confidence that faith is enough.

Maybe I'm thinking too much on it. Maybe, I should, as the Beatles once sang, "let it be." I dont know. Comments welcome.
