Faith

The dictionaries definition of faith:  confidence in the testimony of another, trust in a person or thing.

The Bible gives this definition of faith: “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” Hebrews 11:1. What else does the Bible have to say about faith? A lot, the Bible tells us to live by faith, walk by faith, pray by faith, resist evil by faith, overcome the world by faith and die by faith. It tells us to stand fast in faith, continue in faith, be strong in faith, be grounded in faith, hold fast to faith, pray for increase of faith and have assurance of faith. This all comes about as we grow in our understanding of the faithfulness of God. Our faith matures. It is a process, as we will see in the life of Abraham

This image appealed to me, and the faith message spot on.

PPS Slide 3

I have chosen Enoch and Abraham of the many elders to explore their faith journey together. In particular, we will look at Abraham in depth, as he, apart from Jesus, is in many respects the greatest man in Scripture. First let us look at Enoch. It says Enoch walked with God three hundred years and begot sons and daughters. “And Enoch walked with God; and he was not for God took him.”
