A portrait of faith

September 14, 2016


What is faith? Some people would assert that they don’t have a faith—at all, none—faith is only for religious people they say. Others say they do have faith specifically in Jesus, but to what extent does their ‘faith’ play out in the things of everyday life? How do they connect this faith to how they live and the choices they make?

Is faith in Jesus an intellectual agreement as to his historical existence? These questions are of no small importance to life, particularly as Hebrews 11:6 says: without faith it is impossible to please God. The last three chapters in Hebrews has much to say about what God means by ‘faith’ and how our faith touches every part of our life. The series follows the following breakdown:
