Faith is . . .
Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. This is what the ancients were commended for.
By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God’s command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible.
Biblical faith requires both intellectual assent and consequential action.
Biblical faith includes both confidence and conviction.
Faith is confidence that results in action carried out in a variety of situations by ordinary people in response to the unseen God and his promises, with various earthly outcomes but always the ultimate outcome of God’s commendation and reward.
Biblical faith connects us to the greater realities only experienced through a relationship with God.
