Message of the Day: Have Faith! Seek God! Desire to Please Him!

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.” (Hebrews 11:6, NKJV)

Moralists characteristically drew morals from examples they cited. The sacrifices of Abel, Enoch’s daily life, and Noah’s obedience all pleased God because they arose out of faith.

These Old Testament heroes of faith trusted in the God that they do not see and in the faithfulness of this God to those who wholeheartedly sought him. Because of this God rewarded them, but rejected those who showed no faith. Here it was clear that Enoch had faith because he pleased God.

Faith must have an object, and the proper object of genuine faith is God. With faith in our hearts, let us seek God and desire to please Him!
