REVEALED WORD TODAY
// Read: Hebrew 11:1-7 //
Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. 2 This is what the ancients were commended for.
3 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.
4 By faith Abel brought God a better offering than Cain did. By faith he was commended as righteous, when God spoke well of his offerings. And by faith Abel still speaks, even though he is dead.
5 By faith Enoch was taken from this life, so that he did not experience death: “He could not be found, because God had taken him away.”[a] For before he was taken, he was commended as one who pleased God. 6 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.
7 By faith Noah, when warned about things not yet seen, in holy fear built an ark to save his family. By his faith he condemned the world and became heir of the righteousness that is in keeping with faith.
Faith, love, obedience and patience are very important factors needed in partnering with God. Without faith, it is impossible to please God and if you cannot please God, you cannot partner with Him. Therefore anybody who desires to partner with God must love and believe that He is not a man that can lie, such must obey God’s instruction and patiently wait for the divine intervention.
