Cliché describes a word or phrase that is used so often it’s practically meaningless. A danger all Christians must fight off is to make cliché God’s vocabulary. A prime example is the word “faith.” To ask for a definition of faith may elicit some synonyms (belief & trust), some paraphrases of Bible verses (Hebrews 11:1), and maybe a few yawns.
What a shame that would be because faith is one of the most dynamic and challenging words in scripture. The stories in the gospels where faith is the central theme are never yawn-inducing.
