Loyal When You Can’t See God Working
Wes McAdams   -  

When we read the phrase, “Faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen,” we often take it to mean that faith is believing in something without evidence. This is a really poor understanding of faith. The Hebrew writer is saying that faith is being unshakably committed to a God you can’t see. The Jewish Christians were tempted to return their loyalties to the temple system they could see, but the Hebrew writer is reminding them that their forefathers had been commended for their commitment to the unseen. (Scripture: Hebrews 11:1-6)
