Twenty-eight times in Hebrews 11 the word “faith” is used. The final parts of the letter offer great encouragement to the Hebrew Christians who are being tempted to deny their Christ.

Ponder the opening verse of chapter 11 about the nature of faith. Follow the sweeping review of Old Testament saints as the writer lifts them as examples of faith. They gave their lives for what they believed in their heart, without seeing it with their eyes.

You too are in the possession right now, of what you do not fully see—the perfect salvation won for you by Jesus. As you receive it, you anticipate by faith the joy you will experience completely when the veil of this life is removed and your life in heaven unfolds. What links now with then, is your faith. Exult in these chapters.
