In Hebrews 11:1, it says that faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen. You can’t hold faith in your hands, but you can see the results of it. People hope for many things. They hope their life will turn out right. They hope their children will be successful. But where faith begins to develop is when we see it happening. Hebrews chapter 11 is about faith. There were so many people before Jesus that just believed God. And God counted their faith as righteousness. Which means that God accepted them into HIs family. Christians in the first century were persecuted by the Romans. Many were brought to the arena in Rome to be executed. As they were dying in the arena, they would begin to sing praises to God. People saw their faith in God and many would jump in the arena to die with them. The Romans had to stop executing the Christians because too many people were joining them. This is how faith works. You hope, then you see the results and believe. No one on this earth, except Jesus, is perfect. We will become perfect when we reach heaven. What God wants from us is faith and trust. When we believe we become part of the God’s family. This is the message. It is as simple as that. What God expects is faith in Him. And all along the way, we will see miracles, healings, deliverance, mountains moved and everything that God has. Because by faith we receive from God.
