What Does the Bible Say about Faith?
Since faith plays a paramount part in our Christian walk, we can imagine that Scripture has a lot to say about faith. Let's take a look at a few of these verses below.
Hebrews 11:1: "Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen."
Faith comes from assurance. We don't just believe blindly. We have evidence of how God has moved in the past, and with this knowledge, we can confidently know he will come through for us in the future.
1 Thessalonians 5:11: "Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing."
Faith also requires an encouraging element. We know that our brothers and sisters may doubt from time to time, as we have. During such moments, we help lift one another up and remind them of God's good promises.
Romans 12:12: "Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer."
The Bible does not say that we will avoid sorrow or trials. But it does say those won't last forever. We know that in our darkest moments, God will not abandon us. And he will turn everything right in the end.
