Faith is essential to the Christian life! In fact, Hebrews 11:6 tells us that without faith, it is impossible to please God. The Hebrew believers to whom the author wrote this great epistle were living in a time of intense oppression and persecution, much like Christians around the world today. In order to have faith in such trying times, these believers needed to understand the greatness of the One in whom they had placed their faith: their Savior, Jesus Christ.
As these believers came to realize the greatness of Jesus, they would understand the greatness of their faith. So too with us! The more we come to know Jesus, the more we will believe God and trust His Word; faith is then implanted and actualized in our hearts. The faith empowers us, blesses us, sustains us, strengthens us, and brings disctinction to our lives. As you consider the greatness of Jesus in the book of Hebrews, you will see the greatness of your faith!
