Rewards without Faith?

Hebrews 11:6

“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.”

The reason we cannot please God without faith is that faith is the core element of our relationship with Father God through His Son, Jesus. The bible stories are built on tales of faith starting with Abraham. Why would God allow Abraham to even think about sacrificing his own son? Of course, this did not happen, but Abraham’s incredible faith in God compelled him to do the unthinkable. For doing so, Abraham was not only rewarded with material things, he retains the label of “Father of Faith”.

Faith pleases God because he is currently not visible to us. Jesus, God in the flesh who is 100% human and 100% God, appeared to many 2,000 years ago. God can appear to us in 100s of ways. To Moses, the Spirit of God appeared in the form of a burning bush. Jesus is the exact representation of God.

We must use our gift of faith that God freely gave to us to break down barriers to our success in life. Trusting God and having great faith in him is key to reaping a lifetime of physical and spiritual rewards. Draw closer to God in faith because we live by faith not by sight.

When you pray, have the faith to believe that you’ll receive all that is promised to you by God according to his ultimate plan for your life.
