What is faith? Two

Faith is trust, and perfect faith is complete trust. What made Yeshua say in Mark 10:14b "Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God." What is it about the faith of little children that so captivated Yeshua? Children trust the adults around them.

Children rest in your arms so completely they will fall asleep. Rarely do they cling for fear that you might drop them. We also should rest in our Heavenly Father's arms, without fear that He will abandon us or harm us.

We are called to a life of faithfulness, because our God is a faithful God.

Deuteronomy 7:9 "Know therefore that Adonai your God, He is God - the faithful God who keeps covenant kindness for a thousand generations with those who love Him and keep His mitzvot ...

2 Thessalonians 3:3 "But the Lord is trustworthy - and He will strengthen and protect you from the evil one."

Many books have been written about faith and to build our faith. The Bible is full of the stories of persons who were less than perfect, but had faith. So we return to Hebrews 6 for the last word.

Hebrews 6:6 "Now without faith it is impossible to please God. For the one who comes to God must believe that He exists and that He is a rewarder of those who seek Him."
