Why is faith a virtue? Shouldn’t people wait for evidence? If God rewards belief, doesn’t that just make people gullible? What’s wrong with demanding proof?

Jesus reconnects people to God as a gift. Our role is simply to trust that he has. But trusting is hard, and sometimes we try to turn trusting Jesus into an act on our part. How can we know if we’re trusting Jesus, or trying to trust ourselves? Pastor Luke teaches from Genesis 15:1–6 in “Trust,” part 4 of his 5-part series “Long Live the Reformation.”

How can we get Jesus to help us with our problems? Assuming they’re good problems, is there some way to ensure that God will help us with them? Is there a certain spiritual discipline, or any other way, to be sure we can have God’s help? Pastor Luke preaches from Luke 7:1–17 in “Levers.”
