“And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.” Hebrews 11:6 (NIV)
This may well be a very familiar verse for you, or it may be the first time you've read it. Hebrews chapter 11 is often called the faith chapter. We can learn some basic teaching about what real faith consists of. First of all true faith must be based on a belief that there is a God and that He is the God of the Bible. So when we believe that the God who reveals Himself in the Bible really exists and is there for us, it pleases God. Then too we must believe that God responds to our desire to know Him and He responds to our prayers. That also pleases Him and He will then respond and will meet our needs. Let's be sure that our faith today in every way pleases God.
