"In the very face of all the natural difficulties and the temporal contradictions of mortal existence, [Jesus] experienced the tranquility of supreme and unquestioned trust in God and felt the tremendous thrill of living, by faith, in the very presence of the heavenly Father.  And this triumphant faith was a living experience of actual spirit attainment.”  [UB 196:1]

Thought Adjuster: “Jesus was faith-driven to establish the Kingdom of Heaven on Earth, and faith-sustained to overcome the many personal challenges He had to face during His eventful human life.

"The Urantia Book describes in-depth the various attributes of Jesus’ faith: "[It was] personal, living, original, spontaneous, and purely spiritual . . . [It] was a sublime experience and a profound conviction which securely held him…. Nothing was able to tear him away from the spiritual anchorage of this fervent, sublime, and undaunted faith… he calmly stood in the divine presence free from fear and fully conscious of spiritual invincibility.” [UB 196:01]

"How does your faith profile itself against the awe-inspiring backdrop of Jesus' living faith? Jesus was the spoke person for the Living Truth. He could also be the poster boy for the sublime qualities of Living Faith. Unlike the type of blind faith entertained by many of you, His faith was intelligent, focused, practical, and stripped of ineffective superstition-ridden rituals. 

“Reboot your faith by stripping it from all superfluous bells and whistles. Dive into its very core—the Truth of the Living God. Invite Truth and Faith to be your wingmen in your steep climb into the purified realms of Love and Light.

“Rather than foolishly placing your faith in fallible human beings—the blinds leading the blind—wisely invest it in the one human being that will not disappoint you, as He IS the Way and the Light.

“Oxygenate your faith by getting it out of the stuffy closets of obsolete beliefs. Feed your soul with the same vital force that sustained Jesus’ living faith, and you will get to experience a rewarding one-to-One relationship with your Heavenly Father.”
