In the book of Hebrews, chapter
eleven is known for speaking about faith and there is no other
chapter in the Bible that deals with faith in such detail. The
apostle Paul challenged readers to look at the various men and women
who walked with God through difficult circumstances and believed
that He was real and would not let them down. Before you can really
understand this chapter, it is necessary to first define faith, and
it is interesting that Paul said that faith begins by believing that
God is the Creator. Some Christians have faith in faith, others have
faith in people, but real divine faith only comes when you have a
strong relationship with God the Father. However, sin, unforgiveness
and unbelief will destroy faith. Pastor John shows how faith is the
substance of things hoped for, it is an emotion, and the hope of the
mind that something is going to happen. Additionally, faith is a
gift from the Holy Spirit and knowing God as your Father.
Christianity can be summed as having faith in God and in the Bible.
