And it is impossible to please God without faith. Anyone who wants to come to Him must believe that God exists and that He rewards those who sincerely seek Him.
As I worked on the first book in the ‘I Choose! Series’, I had a sense that one day I would write one about faith. Why? Because I’m convinced that everyone has faith—but many people don’t understand the critical nature of what they choose to believe in.
I Choose Faith! is not only my personal apologetic about faith in Jesus, but it also speaks to three specific types of readers. Here’s how I introduce this concept in the preface of I Choose Faith!:
- If you are someone who thinks you AREN’T a person of faith, keep reading! You may be surprised to discover that you have a lot more faith than you ever realized.
- If you’ve believed in God in the past, but now you aren’t sure about what you believe, then please keep reading too. The thoughts I’m going to share should encourage you that you’ve got a good foundation to keep building your faith upon.
- If you’re an individual who has great faith, and you’d like to keep growing, then the concepts in the pages ahead should not only inspire you in your own faith journey but should also help you find new ways to share what you believe with others around you.
During His life, Jesus revealed that God gives us the opportunity to be assured of our eternal destination when our journey on this Earth is finished: “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me” (John 14:6)—yet there are still so many individuals who are confused despite this simple salvation message.
The goal of I Choose Faith! is to explain Jesus’ message in a new, fresh way. I’ve prayed throughout the process that the Lord’s truths would be conveyed, and many godly colleagues and friends have reviewed the pages to verify that the concepts are clear and concise. Of all of the books I’ve written, I believe I Choose Faith! is the most significant. Please pray with all of us at Sonkist Ministries as we release it to the public: may this book reach every reader who needs to understand more about the importance of choosing faith!
