Sandburg’s Faith

Sandburg’s Faith

“And in the Churches
We walk by faith
And not by sight,”
Said Sandburg.
The ‘bunkshooter,’
The blind looter
Of Freedom’s call
To walk while seeing,
Or not to walk at all.
“This Jesus was good to look at,”
Sandburg said. He saw Him too.
His faith had substance and hoped—
In what is seen, and in what is real;
Faith that comes through;
Faith that rewards at the reveal.

“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” –Hebrews 11:1

“But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.” –Hebrews 11:6
