My interest in things of faith started one and a half years ago. I wanted to learn more on the basics of Christianity, so I took part in an Alpha course (a course where they discuss the basic truths of Christianity).
During the course my interest grew and I wondered what people might mean when they said they had received faith. It felt so distant and I hadn’t really understood the meaning of the word.
Little by little things became clearer. At some point a friend of mine from the Alpha course directed the following passage from the Bible, Romans 10:9, to me:
"If on your lips is the confession, ’Jesus is Lord’, and in your heart the faith that God raised him from the dead, then you will find salvation.", Room. 10:9.
At last I realized that this was exactly what was missing. I lacked the confession of my faith. After this confession I got to experience this amazing peace in my heart and only then did I realize what living in faith is.
