Sunday, March 18

By faith we perceive that the systems of things were put in order by God’s word, so that what is seen has come into existence from things that are not visible.—Heb. 11:3.

The Bible’s description of faith is found at Hebrews 11:1. Faith focuses on two kinds of things that are not visible to us: (1) “What is hoped for”—this may include future events that have been promised to happen but that have not yet occurred, such as the end of all wickedness and the coming new world. (2) “Realities that are not seen.” In this context, the Greek word translated “evident demonstration” refers to “convincing evidence” of an invisible reality, such as the existence of Jehovah God, Jesus Christ, the angels, and the activities of the heavenly Kingdom. How do we prove that our hope is alive and that we believe in the unseen things spoken of in God’s Word? By our words and deeds—without which our faith would be incomplete. w16.10 4:6

Faith is a powerful motivating force. When we have faith in Jehovah and Jesus we do not just know about what they have done, but we are convinced of what they will do for us in the future. This faith gives me a strong desire to continue to strive to live in harmony with the way his Word has taught me to live.
