Bible text(s)


1To have faith is to be sure of the things we hope for, to be certain of the things we cannot see.

Hebrews 11:1GNBOpen in Bible reader

32Should I go on? There isn't enough time for me to speak of Gideon, Barak, Samson, Jephthah, David, Samuel, and the prophets. 33Through faith they fought whole countries and won. They did what was right and received what God had promised. They shut the mouths of lions, 34put out fierce fires, escaped being killed by the sword. They were weak, but became strong; they were mighty in battle and defeated the armies of foreigners. 35Through faith women received their dead relatives raised back to life.

Others, refusing to accept freedom, died under torture in order to be raised to a better life.

Hebrews 11:32-35GNBOpen in Bible reader

7For our life is a matter of faith, not of sight.

2 Corinthians 5:7GNBOpen in Bible reader

9If you confess that Jesus is Lord and believe that God raised him from death, you will be saved. 10For it is by our faith that we are put right with God; it is by our confession that we are saved.

Romans 10:9-10GNBOpen in Bible reader

24“I am telling you the truth: those who hear my words and believe in him who sent me have eternal life. They will not be judged, but have already passed from death to life.

40For what my Father wants is that all who see the Son and believe in him should have eternal life. And I will raise them to life on the last day.”

To have faith is to be so convinced of the truthfulness and reliability of that in which you believe that you base your actions on those beliefs.
