Why did Paul say he was filling up what was lacking in Christ’s afflictions? I can’t seem to fulfill my calling, and it has been many years. I am now wondering if I’m even saved. Why did Jesus compare faith to a mustard seed? Do I need more faith today? How do we reconcile “the dead in Christ will rise first” with “absent from the body and present with the Lord”? How do I walk by faith and not by sight or feeling?
