Faith and Assurance

“Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.”- Hebrews 11:1

Chapter eleven of the book of Hebrews is known as the hall of fame of faith.  It describes the faith of the Old Testament patriarchs.  The chapter gives examples of the Noah, Abraham, Enoch, and others who were deemed righteous because of their faith.  By giving examples, the author shows us that biblical faith is not grounded in some vague hope, but gives us confidence of something in the future.

This faith is not some sort of blind trust, but confidence in an all-powerful God.  This assurance and confidence is granted to those who put their faith in Jesus Christ.  Where are you putting your faith today?  By putting your faith in Jesus Christ we are made a new creation and are granted the assurance of Heaven.  Take a few moments to examine your life.  Is there something that you are hesitant in handing over to Christ.  That thing has the greatest potential to make you stumble.  Lastly if you have accepted Christ have confidence in His promise to never leave you nor forsake you.  If you have drifted away ask Him for forgiveness and come back.  It is never to late.
