What Faith Is and What Faith Gives

Some have asked for a “reprint” of some of my thoughts/notes from my message in Hebrews 11:1-3 regarding faith — “What Faith Is and What Faith Gives” (mainly because these comments weren’t on the slides behind me and I didn’t repeat them much). So here’s a brief recapitulation of the highlights.

Faith is confidence in God in light of what I do see and in spite of what I don’t see (v 1).

Faith gives a vertical commendation, a horizontal understanding, and an external endurance (v 2-3).

Essentially, through we faith we can relate to God properly, reason about life correctly, and react to trials faithfully. No wonder faith is said to be indispensable ingredient to pleasing God!
