The Just Shall Live By Faith – Pt 3 (Hebrews Pt 33)

[Hebrews 11:1-2. This episode continues the mini series “The Just Shall Live by Faith”, within our ongoing Hebrews series.] In this episode, we learn:

  • God in His grace, through Jesus, has supplied ALL. Therefore, we have all NOW. Faith takes and personally appropriates what God has already richly supplied.
  • What faith is NOT.
  • Faith is the substance — ground of confidence, guarantee — of things hoped for.
  • Faith is the EVIDENCE of things not seen.
  • Hebrews 11 is not about faith “heroes”, but rather ordinary people who lived by faith in the goodness of God.

The Just Shall Live By Faith – Pt 2 (Hebrews Pt 32)

[Hebrews 11 intro, Heb 10:38-39]

What IS faith? That’s a very important question to answer, since the Bible is clear that “the just shall live by faith” (Hab 2:4, Rom 1:17, Gal 3:11, Heb 10:38). In this episode we dig into this question and discover that there are two aspects of faith:

  • First, faith looks to the PERSON of the living Lord Jesus Christ: Christ IN US the hope of glory and we IN CHRIST, giving us completeness NOW.
  • Second, faith acknowledges and enjoys the perfect, finished work of The Lord Jesus Christ.

We also learn that we are “believers”, not because we believe, but because GOD has MADE us that way! This is all because of the perfection of JESUS and HIS FINISHED WORK.

Note: This series, “The Just Shall Live by Faith” is a mini-series, which is part of the ongoing series, “Hebrews: The Glory of The New Covenant”

The just shall live by faith“. Six powerful and vital words that are often neglected by the vast majority of Christians. Living by faith is non-optional with God. In four key places in the scripture we read, “the just shall live by faith”. The language of faith appears 677 in the New Testament. From God’s perspective, living by faith is essential to pleasing Him (Heb 11:6) and successfully living the Christian life.

Why? In this groundbreaking episode, we’ll learn how living by faith is intimately tied to the grace of God and the finished work of our Lord Jesus. You’ll learn essential keys to living victoriously by faith!

The Necessity of The Just Shall Live By Faith

By Mark VanOuse
Hebrews 11:6 (NKJV)

[6] But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.

How many would like to please God? If you are truly born again, a child of God, deep down you desire to please God, right?
“Without faith it is impossible to please Him”
Now, Hebrews 11:6 stands in the context of the greatest chapter in all the Bible about faith, in the greatest book in all the Bible about the New Covenant. You would agree, then, that this verse is extremely important on the subject of living the Christian life in a manner that truly pleases God, right?
