My daily exploration of the Bible, taking it one chapter at a time. If I do it everyday, it'll take 1189 days.

Hebrews 11

Faith

Summary:
Faith is believing what isn't proven. We understand creation by this. By faith Noah built a boat when there was no rain. Abraham moved to a foreign land. These people didn't get their promises whilst they were alive! They weren't looking for a physical inheritance, but a spiritual one. They could only hope for this in faith.

Moses stood up to Pharaoh by faith. Jericho fell by faith. Many others lived by faith but still didn't get what they were promised until this generation in Jesus.

Key verse:
1. Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.

My thoughts:
Ah faith. Faith has so little respect in our society today. It is so against how our world thinks. If someone has faith/hope in something but doesn't get it before the day they die, then this world calls them a failure. God calls them a faithful servant.

The truth is that faith makes no sense without God. It simply doesn't. But with God it is what separates the boys from the men!

I could probably say more, but I'm at camp, and I'm tired.
