What is the faith? The Bible tells us that it is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. It’s that simple, this is faith. But faith is not only to believe, but to believe always. I mean, in the Bible we found many men and women of God who were tried as refined gold and believe me that the best came out of them and all this serves as an illustration so that we can have that faith and when we are tried, we can be victorious.
The Bible says:
6 In all this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials.
7 These have come so that the proven genuineness of your faith—of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire—may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed.
8 Though you have not seen him, you love him; and even though you do not see him now, you believe in him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy,
9 for you are receiving the end result of your faith, the salvation of your souls.
1 Peter 1:6-9
