Faith and Emotion by Pastor Melissa Scott

May 14, 2010 · Posted in Pastor Melissa Scott 

Everything points back to rock-solid Faith and I always ask myself the question “Why do people waver so much?” I’m not talking about little bits, I’m talking about one day we’re up and the next day we’re down. I’m not talking about emotions because I think most people have this confused. Faith and your emotions are not the same, they’re not synonymous. Faith is based on a fact starting with the Resurrection. Now how can you slide around that? How can your Faith become less? Are you less sure today than you were a year ago about Jesus Christ’s Resurrecting? Absolutely not! Then why would your Faith move? Now I’m not talking about being a stoic. A stoic is more than “I shall not be, I shall not be moved” (like the song), it’s more like “I refuse to let anybody see me cry, blink, or smile.” I’m not talking about that.

Pastor Melissa Scott talks about Faith. Read about Paul in the New Testament. He’s in prison, he’s in a cell, he’s shipwrecked, he’s beaten, he’s being tried, and yet he’s still Paul full of Faith. He doesn’t have anything other than the fact that he’s been converted, his Damascus road experience, and the element that makes him go out and proclaim the Word with certainty and confidence—the power of Jesus Christ. There’s a good definition of Faith right there.
