Hebrews 11:1 "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen."
Four introductory considerations in regards to faith.
1. Faith is formed by God's Word - Romans 10:17
2. Faith is informed by God's Word - Although faith is personal, it is not subjective.
3. Faith believes God completely or entirely - All of the Bible is to believed. All of it.
4. Faith exercises trust in God. Faith simply put is trusting God and His Word.
