There is the potential and possibility for every believer to come to a place in your spiritual journey where God, Christ, and his Bible becomes more real to you than your five senses.

When you get there, the things of this world will grow strangely dim.

Hebrews 12:1&2

1Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.
2Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

When you start to love God, the world grows dim.

Faith is not ritualistic rules and laws.
Faith is not theory of a gospel. It is more than church attendance, it is more than memorizing scripture.
Faith is more than a season.
Faith is not a goal.

I don't want to be presented with the truth all of my life and never accept it in my heart. In my mind. In my will. In my emotions.

Revelations 3:16
So, because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I am about to spit you out of my mouth.

Faith is a commitment of the HEART (emotions, will, mind) to be interested in and controlled by the truth Christ revealed.

Revelations 3:20
I stand at the door of your heart & knock. If you will open the door I will come into you and you in me and I will dine with you.
