The French philosopher Voltaire once said: "Faith consists in believing when it is beyond the power of reason to believe." Voltaire spoke of a form of faith that lives, breathes, and moves beyond the ordinary, to the extraordinary.

In like manner, Dale Carnegie spoke of a form of living that echoes Voltaire's thoughts on believing beyond the power of reason. Carnegie once declared, "Are you bored with life? Then throw yourself into some work you believe in with all your heart, live for it, die for it, and you will find happiness that you had thought could never be yours."

These words spoken by earthly men ring of the eternal truth spoken by Jesus Christ when he commanded Lazarus to come out from the grave, and live. These words highlight the kind of living Jesus desires for us all --in the here and now -- that emerges from believing beyond the ordinary in his resurrection power. For Christ said, to live is to believe in me; and, to believe in me, is to live.
