The 92nd day – What is faith?
Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see. — Hebrews 11:1
Interestingly, I was watching videos about ‘WHAT IS FAITH’ earlier before I was aware that this is the topic of today’s 100 verse bible.
What is Faith?
Bible teaches us ‘Faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.’ The great evangelist Billy Graham interprets it as: Faith is believing and receiving what God has revealed (in bible, in nature, in conscience …) and it can be defined as Trust in God of the scriptures and in Jesus Christ whom he has sent. Also he emphasises that Faith without work is dead.
Faith is not only about being confident in God and his words but also about a total dependence on Christ for our forgiveness and our fulfilment in our life.
Why Faith is so important?
Hebrew 11:6 tells us WITHOUT FAITH IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO PLEASE GOD. In Romans 5 says: Through Faith, we receive peace and grace of God. Faith is the only path that not only allows us to “see” God, but also to draw near to His presence and fellowship with our heavenly Father…
Could I share with you this incredible video: “Three things we can not do without” by Billy Graham. This is the second part of it (about Faith). However I would definitely encourage you to watch all four parts if you can. He is amazing! God bless you!
