Theme and Scripture

Faith / Eye Logo

"for we walk by faith, not by sight"
is based on II Cor. 5:7

    The National Youth Cabinet chose the theme "...with Eyes of Faith" based on 2 Corinthians 5:7, "...for we walk by faith, not by sight," to focus youth toward recognizing how their faith colors their view of the world.

    As we discuss and explore this theme, we hope NYC will help both youth and the larger church body to become active members in the community of God's creation by living their lives "...with eyes of faith."

    II Corinthians 5:7 suggests that even when we can't see the way clear, faith provides an avenue through the difficulties of life. Trusting God enables us to see with eyes of faith.
