Heb 11:1    Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

So what does this mean, anyway?  Is faith just believing even though we don’t see God?  Is faith in Christ just believing that he is the Messiah, and that he died for our sins?  I believe it is far more than just believing…………………It is trust.

Heb 11:7    By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by the which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith.

Noah didn’t just believe without proof, his proof was that God said it, so it must be so.  Because of his trust in God’s word, Noah moved into action and did as God instructed, and was saved as a result.  We know that Noah believed God because of his actions.
