Without faith it is impossible to please God – Hebrews 11:6

The author of Hebrews points out that it is impossible for anyone to draw near to God unless they believe that He exists and that He rewards those who seek Him. Then he lists some Old Testament figures whose actions prove their belief in God.

These examples are important for us to understand how faith can be used in daily life. The Bible teaches that real faith is more than just assent to the existence of God, but it also includes obeying God and living by His Word.

Biblical faith is more than a simple belief in God; it is an active, ongoing response to Him that produces tangible evidence of the reality of His presence and power in our lives. True obedience comes from the heart and not just from a sense of duty or obligation.

The Hebrew word for faith in this verse is emunah, which means firmness, steadfastness, and fidelity. It is also a common word in the New Testament, appearing over 200 times. This is the word that Paul uses when he says, “No unbelief made him waver concerning the promise of God, but he grew strong in his faith as he gave glory to God, fully convinced that God was able to do what he had promised” (Romans 4:20-21).
