6 Facts About Faith – Hebrews 11:1-19

From my reading in Hebrews 11:1-19 in the One Year Bible New Testament.

1. Faith confidently hopes in the future.

“Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see.” Heb 11:1

2. Faith is essential to pleasing God.

“And it is impossible to please God without faith. Anyone who wants to come to him must believe that God exists and that he rewards those who sincerely seek him.” Heb 11:6   Tweet This

3. Faith is the gateway to righteousness.

“By his faith Noah condemned the rest of the world, and he received the righteousness that comes by faith.” Heb 11:7b

4. Faith is eternally minded.

“Abraham was confidently looking forward to a city with eternal foundations, a city designed and built by God.” Heb 11:10

5. Faith trusts God’s promises.

“It was by faith that even Sarah was able to have a child, though she was barren and was too old. She believed that God would keep his promise.” Heb 11:11

6. Faith is future focused.

“All these people died still believing what God had promised them. They did not receive what was promised, but they saw it all from a distance and welcomed it. They agreed that they were foreigners and nomads here on earth.” Heb 11:13
