Hebrews 11:1-3, 8-16

“Grace Covenant do you feel it, this steadfast hope, burning in our hearts?

For the longest time, I got faith wrong. I confused it with belief.

I thought faith was something I held in my mind, a cognitive agreement with a set of statements:

The existence of God
The divinity of Christ
The resurrection of the dead
The life everlasting

And while belief is a central part of the Christian life, it can be fleeting; it changes over time; it is secondary to something more foundational: faith as a disposition, an assurance; faith as something that you feel much more in your heart than what you hold in your head.

The assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.'”
