VerseD: Hebrews 11:1

Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.
Hebrews 11:1, ESV

We do not “merely believe” something. We show others that we do not follow a blind faith. We have an assurance of our hope as revealed in the Gospel and a peace given through the Word and the Holy Spirit.

  2. This is an important verse indeed which is part of my study for tomorrow’s post. The question I have been pondering all morning is what comes first, faith or hope?

    • If we use the modern “definition” of hope (how it tends to be used), basically wishful thinking, then either way can be true. But biblical hope is different. Certainly faith comes first, then, because hope requires trust that something can even happen. And without faith in Christ, we have no true hope.
