Passage: Hebrews 11:1-6
Service Type:

Bible Text: Hebrews 11:1-6 | Preacher: Pastor Bruce Carlson | Series: Home Builders University

The Problem of No Faith

Romans 14:23 And he that doubteth is damned if he eat, because he eateth not of faith: for whatsoever?

Understanding faith lays the groundwork for living by faith.

Explaining faith.  Heb. 1:1

Topic: faith…Definition: trust

Explained: two phrases used

Gives the idea of reality

… of things hoped for
… Evidence of things not seen

Proof, convincement
Faith is depending of the reality of thins being hoped for, being convinced of those very unseen things.

The Focus of Faith

Many times we make a statement such as “my faith is weak.”
The biblical clarification is that the focus of faith is divine not human. We find the answer to the puzzle if “faith as a grain of mustard seed can move mountains.”

The Guarantee

Faith is depending of the reality of things hoped for, being convinced of those very unseen things because they are based on specific truth.
James 1:5-6

The Increase of Faith.

The actual nature of increase is not in amount but in duration.
Luke 17:5-6
Matt. 17:19-20
Luke 22:31-32
Gal. 5:22-23
James 1:6
