IMPOSSIBLE....

"Without faith it is impossible to please God.... Hebrews 11:6

All born again believers want to please God but some do not seem to understand what FAITH really is; so let's see if we can help understand (as much as possible) exactly what Faith is:

Hebrews 11: 1 states NOW faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

The Amplified bible states it this way: NOW faith is the assurance (the confirmation, the title deed) of the things (we) hope for, being the proof of things (we) do not see and the conviction of their reality (faith perceiving as real fact what is not revealed to the senses).

This is NOW faith...not yesterday or tomorrow's faith. NOW!!!

We use natural faith every day of our lives and never give it a second thought. When we go to a chair to sit, we never wonder 'is this chair going to hold me up'. When we leave our homes to go to work we exercise our faith that our house and belongings will be there when we return. We exercise faith when we enter our car and turn the motor on. (we really exercise faith when getting on and driving the freeways) We exercise faith (we just don't call it that) when we KNOW that when payday rolls around we will receive a check for the work we did. We have faith that when we awake and turn the light on we will have light. We have faith that when we sit up and get out of bed that our legs will hold us up. There are many other examples of natural faith that we just 'take for granted'.

Perhaps that is why Jesus said, "Unless one comes as a child (the faith of a child) he will not enter the kingdom of heaven." We must come in faith believing we have received, trusting that God will do what he said he would. Of course, if one does not know what God said then he/she will have difficulty believing. However, this can be corrected simply by reading the Word of God and not just calling words but read it as a letter from God to you/me and then 'faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God.

Think about it.
