Faith comes from God through the Holy Spirit as you participate in the life of the church. Sometimes, you feel Christ’s presence within your soul and life, and that is always a great blessing. Sometimes you feel nothing. Sometimes your faith is passionate and fervent. At other times you are full of doubts. Independent of what you feel and think, Christ is always with you, and his promise of forgiveness and salvation is for you.
