Without faith it is impossible to please God

Unquestionably, faith must be an invaluable pillar in the life of a Christian, what is faith? Faith is believing in something without even having seen it arrive, and this is our faith, that we believe in God without having seen Him and Christ calls those who believe without seeing: “Blessed.” This is the non-negotiable importance of faith, to believe in God without having seen Him, and if we do not have faith, then we can not please God in any way.

The writer of the book of Hebrews tells us a lot about faith, dedicates a whole chapter to tell us about it, which is chapter 11 of the same book, and it is here that he tells us:

4 By faith Abel brought God a better offering than Cain did. By faith he was commended as righteous, when God spoke well of his offerings. And by faith Abel 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.

Hebrews 11:4-6

Verses four and five denote the great faith that some men of the past had, such as Abel, which the Bible tells us that offered an excellent sacrifice and thereby reached testimony that he was righteous, also tells us about Enoch, who testifies of having pleased God. And the book of Hebrews does not only tells us about these two men, but he mentions others, such as Moses, who preferred martyrdom with the people of Israel than the riches of Egypt.

But should we only look from the horizon at the great faith of those men? Will we stay reading the great stories and contemplating from afar? Not! We have to be close, to contemplate, to admire, to feel that same faith, to believe in God like those men, believing against all odds and waiting for faith even in the most painful tempest.

Friends, without faith it is totally impossible to please God. Let us continue to ignite the flames of our faith and continue to the target, looking to Christ.

    The Scriptures tell us that FAITH is the most important thing for people here on this world or others in the universe created.
    The Bible says in Hebrews 11:6 “But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that comes to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him” (Heb 11:6).
    Absolutely the faith is a gift of God.
    Our responsibility is necessary when doing things, in our actions, but the power of God is manifest through our faith.
    We may be men or women of little faith, but the Lord Jesus advising to his apostles “said to them, Because of your unbelief: for truly I say to you, If you have faith as a grain of mustard seed, you shall say to this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible to you“. (Matthew 17:20)
    Then, we can pray to our Father who is in Heaven: O Lord, increase our faith, and so it is possible we can to reach our petitions.
    God be blessed.

    We are truely living in a time when is truely as important today as it was in the days of Moses. Remember that Moses had enough faith that death would and did passover the first born his people. So in these times of pure hate and selfishness we too must have faith our father has not forgotten any of us. Amen
