Gretchen and Katie talk a little bit about the new and fresh love someone feels about their spouse, compared to the depth one sees in the low parts, when you realize they will stick with you no matter what.

On the other side, what happens when we look at our faith through a logical lens, defining it by how much we are able to understand or articulate? Do the academics have more faith than a child?

What it comes down to is, are we looking outside of us, to see the value and health of our faith, or are we looking within, to ourselves, to determine the value and health of our faith.

Emotions and logic are both good, and give us helpful information, but they aren't the determining factors, because our faith comes from Christ--not us. We look to him for our salvation, and our growth, not ourselves.

Join us to talk about assurance at the Here We Still Stand conference in Las Vegas.
