Good morning people whose lives testify about the God you profess
Hebrews 11:1-2 NIV Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. This is what the ancients were commended for.
Faith is what the ancients were commended for, because faith is commendable by God. But this verse takes us deeper if we dare to look.
The word commended here means: ‘be a witness, testify, give evidence, bear record, have a good report’.
So, let’s look deeper.
God commends these ancient people of faith.
Not because they said the words, “I have faith in God”, but because their actions were a witness to their faith in God; their actions testified, gave evidence, bore record and gave a good report about the God they confessed!
God commends faith that bears witness to His Lordship and greatness in our lives.
