The Meaning of Faith (Hebrews 11:1-6)David De Bruyn, September 2, 2018
Part of the Hebrews series.
If we misunderstand what faith is, we will keep reading our misunderstanding into Scripture every time we read the word 'faith'. Hebrews gives a clear definition and description of faith.
|« Faithful to the Finisher of the Faith||None||From Drifting to Denying »|
1Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. 2For by it the elders obtained a good report. 3Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear. 4By faith Abel offered unto God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, by which he obtained witness that he was righteous, God testifying of his gifts: and by it he being dead yet speaketh. 5By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death; and was not found, because God had translated him: for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God. 6But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him. (KJV)
