Now faith is the substance of things hoped for,
the evidence of things not seen.
Hebrews 11 is the great “Faith” chapter…Beginning with the definition of faith and working its way through the lives of God’s people, this chapter shows us how their faith was exhibited.
We see Able giving a more excellent sacrifice than Cain; Enoch pleasing God and being translated that he should not see death; Noah acted on faith to something unseen and Abraham acting out his faith by obedience. These are just a few.
Then verse six tells us:
But without faith it is impossible to please Him; for he that cometh to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him.
And in verse sixteen we see this phrase: ….wherefore, God is not ashamed to be called their God….
What does that phrase say to you?
Has it ever occurred to you that God could or even would be ashamed to be called “your” God?
Does your life exhibit the kind of lifestyle that He would approve of?
"Is" God ashamed to be called “your” God?
