About
Living Faith is a Christian blog that interacts with a variety of biblical, theological and practical topics written by Grand Canyon University's College of Theology faculty and specially invited guests of the college. Our content provides practical and biblical advice from a Christian worldview for living our faith in the midst of an increasingly secularized world. In addition, our content wrestles with cultural topics and issues that challenge how we live out our faith as believers. For this reason, contributors to our Christian blog strive to write with compassion and apologetic concern to honor Christ and edify the church in every way possible.

When walking with Jesus, every day turned into a learning experience for his disciples. They were learning who Jesus was, his person, his mission and his way. Jesus taught them through parables, miracles, object lessons and sermons. He also taught them through his daily interaction with people, ordinary people, forgotten people and people of power and influence. As a good teacher, Jesus wanted his disciples to have a clear understanding of his person and teachings and to embody those truths in their own lives. All the efforts of Jesus in teaching his disciples would have been in vain if they did not make the truth their own. As disciples of Jesus today, we too are learning to walk with Jesus every day, to know who he is and what is his way. Every day, Jesus has one inescapable question for us.

Thanksgiving has always been one of my favorite holidays. When I was young, I even preferred it over Christmas, which may seem odd. I always enjoyed the gathering of friends and family and the activities surrounding the day. I also looked forward to eating enough turkey, stuffing and anything else to the point that I couldn’t even speak. But when it was over, things got back to normal and it was on to Christmas with all the anticipated presents. After all, I was a practical kid.

I read an article recently proclaiming some crazy things for which the author was thankful. A couple that I thought were funny included “my wife’s hair in the drain.” Of course, the reasoning was that if it was missing, so was his wife.so was his wife. Since he was grateful for the presence of his wife, he was grateful for the hair in the sink as well. Another one was his iPhone, because, well, there is an app for everything! It also allowed him to communicate with those he loved the most. Bible students know that every good gift (iPhones and such) and every perfect gift (our wives, of course) is from above, coming down from the Father of lights (James 1:17).

The gospels record fascinating stories that document Jesus’s training of his disciples. Jesus’s approach to discipleship, however, was not the typical one-hour weekly class where a Christian instructor teaches through the content of a manual. For Jesus, life lessons were more important than mere classroom talks. On one occasion, after a long day of ministry, Jesus decided to send his disciples across the lake while he went up to the mountain to pray (Matthew 14:22-23). What seemed like another day of ministry turned out to be a great life lesson in faith. But the main lesson was not Peter’s audacious walk on the water. Jesus taught his disciples to trust in him even at the darkest times of their lives. In a way, the passage presents a parable teaching Jesus’s modern-day disciples to trust in him despite his apparent absence.
