Hebrews 11:1-3 Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of 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.

Commentary:

In God’s perfect plan is the answer to why we have so many remaining questions about God. Faith is our salvation. To be created without the freedom of choice would make man no different than the animals of the earth. But through our acceptance and faith, we freely choose to serve our God. Faith is believing even when we don’t see every fact spelled out. If God gave us every answer, then the concept of faith and choice would not matter. We would be robots.

 

1 Thessalonians 2:8 We loved you so much that we were delighted to share with you not only the gospel of God but our lives as well, because you had become so dear to us.

Commentary:

If faith is invisible, something we cannot see, then how is it that faith is understood and passed on to others? The Apostle Paul shares a key element in faith building. He tells us that besides the Gospel, the message of Christ and salvation, we share our lives. By reflecting our own faith against worldly problems, others see the invisible become visible. There is no more powerful presentation of the Gospel that the one given without the use of words.
