Hebrews 11-13

Faith what is it? Everyone has a measure of faith. This passage offers a definition. "Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen." (11.1).  Jesus has promised eternal life with Him in His Father's house to all who trust in Him. He has promised to return and take us home. We have the assurance that this will be, because we have faith. John the Baptist said; "He who believes in the Son has everlasting life, and he who does not believe the Son shall not see life but the wrath of God abides on him." (Jo.3.36)

 He is talking about faith, trusting in the promises of Jesus Christ. Many people believe that Jesus is the Christ, but do you trust Him? Jesus said; "Truly, truly, I say to you, he who believes has eternal life." (Jo.6.47).  If you believe in Him why do you labor? Why do you seek favor from God by the things that you do?

Do you want approval from God? Trust Him, that is the only way to gain approval from God. All our good works are but filthy rags to God without trusting Him. He has promised eternal life to everyone who trust him. He allowed his son to be publicly executed and His blood spilled for us. He defeated death and rose from the grave.
