By Faith is how you please God

Howdy y'all! xD For the next few days we're going to be on Hebrews 11. It's a pretty awesome chapter :D anyway here we go.

Hebrews 11

New International Version 1984 (NIV1984)

 

By Faith

  
1 Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of 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 offered God a better sacrifice than Cain did. By faith he was commended as a righteous man, when God spoke well of his offerings. And by faith he 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. 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.


Abel was faithful to God, giving him the best of what he had. Because of his faith in God, and faithfulness to God, he still speaks today.
Enoch pleased God with his faith also. He so pleased with Enoch's faith, that He took him away.

So remember, keep your faith strong. If others hate you for it, sucks for them. They don't know what they're missing. The important thing is that you're pleasing God. And he will reward you for it.
God bless and have a great day!! :D
