Faith is not the human act of merely consenting to theological knowldge but it is the divine act of submitting both our Intellect and Will to God's revelation. If the Intellect alone is employed, knowledge remains simply as true and good life-giving information. It does not transform our life nor does it give life. Faith without action is dead.

Wisdom belongs to the one who submit his will completely to God and present himself as an empty jar, even as his intelligence and knowledge super abound.


Relate to God consistently despite failures.
