Hebrews 11:6 “But without faith it is impossible to please Him:  for he that comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him.”
Today, there are many Christians who do not experience the power and grace promised by God’s Word.  They have faith that has given them eternal life, but they do not have faith to walk in the Spirit and work the works of God.
Consider the context of this verse.  It is found within a list of men and women who lived devoted to God.  This eleventh chapter of Hebrews is called “The Hall of Fame of Faith”; these are the heroes of faith.
As you read each of their stories, you quickly discover they lived in a manner that was beyond your normal experience.  They were all sinners, the Bible clearly showed their sins.  But they all followed hard after God.  And God worked through them to accomplish His purpose.
God wants to work in and through every believer.  He has plans for every believer to take part in building His Kingdom here and now. If you are to take your place in God’s great plan you must be willing to work within the method and manner He requires; that is “by faith.”
Everyone listed in chapter eleven had these characteristics:  They had “saving” faith to take them to Heaven when they died. But they also had faith to do the work of God in their life on earth.  Consequently God used them in great ways for His glory. The walk of faith cannot be explained in this small space.  But every believer should be daily seeking to learn to walk with God in faith.
Colossians 2:6-7 “As you have therefore received Christ Jesus, the Lord, so you walk in Him:  Rooted and built up in Him, and established in the faith.”
You receive Christ by faith and you also walk by faith.  You walk by faith, not by sight.
What are you trusting God for today?
