That the universe came into being by accident is, to me, beyond belief.
But now let’s use “beyond belief” in a very different sense.
Faith as a beginning
God wants us to grow beyond (mere) belief—certainly not leaving faith behind, but building on it (2 Peter 1:5-11). Faith is foundational (Hebrews 6:1).
Faith is “The root of the Christian life” (NIV Study Bible, p. 1899). It is “the foundation and the source from which all other duties spring” (Guy N. Woods, A Commentary on the New Testament Epistles of Peter, John, and Jude, p. 150).
As essential as roots and foundations are, they are just the beginning.
Faith, without proper application, is worthless (John 12:42-43; James 2:14-26).
Let’s go beyond belief!
