A friend gave me the idea of thinking through one word for the year. This past year I’ve been wrestling through what it means to functionally believe the Gospel — not just in theory, but in real-life practice (like how do I believe the Gospel in the area of my finances, whether I am in plenty or in want). For me at least, it seems to boil down to faith. Do I really believe the Gospel, or not?

So for this year, as I read my morning devotions, read through Scripture, and interact with everyday life, I will be ruminating on the word FAITH.
