What is Faith?

So, where am I with all this…? Where has this journey taken me, and how should it impact my life? I intellectually believe that certain things happened in history, but what does that really mean for my life today…?
What is belief? What is faith?
Although the Christian faith is not based purely on evidence, it is definitely supported by evidence. Faith is not about turning off the brain and merely relying on the heart, or squashing reason in favor of emotion. No, Christian faith is about seeking and knowing Jesus with all facets of the human character. It's not a "blind faith" as I once thought… It's a "calculated faith" based on a preponderance of the evidence. Well, I've collected the evidence, and I've put it on trial… After a number of months in the jury room, I have returned with my personal verdict… Jesus Christ is who he claims to be… the Son of God who came to this earth about 2,000 years ago to offer true and lasting hope for mankind.
OK, now what…? I intellectually believe, by a preponderance of the evidence, that God exists, that the Bible is true, and that Jesus is his Son… How does this affect me? What is faith, as far as it concerns me?
