But when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on earth?
In a generic sense, faith is all around us and is part of our everyday lives. Who among us knows how to perform brain surgery, fix a car, butcher meat, make clothing, or program a computer? Even if a person knows how to do one or more of those items, they do not know how to do all things, and so we rely on others to provide these things for us. We put our faith in others to do all sorts of things we rely on each day, but we are generally unconscious and unaware of the faith all around us.
This generic faith can form the basis of our acceptance of the gift of supernatural faith that God freely gives to each one of us. Once we become aware of the faith that governs our everyday lives it becomes much easier to accept this free gift of God and so see God in all things in each moment of each day. This supernatural faith then permeates our every moment and enables us to see that with God all things are possible - unlikely victories are won, overwhelming injustices are overcome, hardened hearts are softened to love beyond all imagining.
The Son of Man will find faith when he comes again. The question is whether he will find faith within me at that moment, whether I have accepted this free gift of God that is all around me. If so, then I can hope beyond all hope that this coming will be the final act in this great drama of faith - our entrance into the reign of God.
