On Faith

Another Todd Parsons devotional thought:

"But without faith it is impossible to please Him: for he that comes to God must believe that He is, and is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him," -- Heb.11:6. Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise Christ, His Son, (Is.53:10a). Jesus Christ believed His Father's plan by faith.  And....

"Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen," -- Heb.11:1. The Son's faith, believing the Father's word beyond what He saw by sight and felt in His sufferings. That faith pleased the Father... We also, when we believe the word of what the Son did on the cross on our behalf, that we would be forgiven, with that faith we please God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.

In other words we please the LORD when we, beyond sight, believe His report that though we have failed, it is okay, all is forgiven by the blood of Jesus Christ having been shed... Let us come to Him, boldly, believing that He "is" and that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him... 

Of Great Love, tjp
