But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
Is it possible to be without faith? Well this scripture indicates to us that it is. Not only is it possible to be without faith but the more crucial element of the above scripture is that without faith we cannot please God. In all actuality it says it is impossible to please God without faith. Wow, that is quit sobering to know that as a Christian my lack of faith can cause displeasure to God.
Well for those of us who love God our first response would be; “Well tell me what to do so that I can always have faith because I want to please God always.”
The Bible reveals to us that faith comes by hearing the Word of God. That word hearing implies something done on a continuous basis. When we seek to please God we no longer read the scriptures out of mere ritual or routine. We understand that as we fellowship with God in His Word, hunger and thirsty to hear what He has to say, faith will come and when faith comes we now possess the ability to believe and receive what God has for us.
God is please and we benefit from His good pleasure. So seek to increase and use your faith because active faith pleases God.
