Faith

heaven

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

The Bible’s definition of faith is “the trust that God exists and that He is the creator and ruler of all things.” The meaning of faith doesn’t stop there. Biblical faith is “a deep conviction, a firm trust God gives to believers, resulting in eternal salvation through Jesus Christ.”

As believers, we wait and hope with joy and a full confidence, for this salvation. We do not see this truth, this established fact, with our eyes. We discern this as truth with the eyes of our spirit—that part of us that lives forever.

These things, this salvation, is an accomplished fact. It’s like a “done deal” in a business transaction. Jesus purchased our salvation when He signed His name with His own blood to seal the deal.

Although this is a free gift to us just for the receiving, it cost Him everything.

Lord Jesus, I receive Your most precious gift.
Thank You for providing it for me.
May I share this good news
with the people You place in my path.

    Thanks for visiting my post “Eating local in Newfoundland,” about the turr. I’m really curious about what brought you to this post, which I published several years ago, but still appears to be as popular as ever. I’d appreciate knowing how you found it. Happy New Year!
