INTRODUCTION. What is faith? The Biblical definition is given in Heb. 11 :1. "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen." But what does that mean?
Faith is the substance (confidence, assurance in God and his word) of the things hoped for (the glorious promises of God revealed in the gospel which are in the future). Faith is the evidence (conviction in our minds) of the things not seen (the invisible things of the universe, past, present, and future, revealed to us by the Holy Spirit in the word of God).
Faith, then, is our confidence in God and his promises, and our conviction that the things revealed in the word of God are true.
