‘Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance in what we do not see.’ Hebrews 11:1

The number of people who met Jesus while He was actually on this earth were so very few compared with the millions of billions who have believed on Him since those days. Jesus said, ‘Blessed are those who have not seen and yet believe.’ John 20:29. That’s us that Jesus is talking about. We worship someone we have not seen with our own eyes., but we see Him in the natural world and it is by the eyes of faith that we see. We see Him in His redemptive love, He is seen in His sacrifice for us.

As the Messiah had not yet been born, Hebrews 11 gives us a long list of people who had lived by faith. We are on the other side of His life and have the scriptures to inform us about His actions. In our hearts we have no doubt, we feel Him in our souls. At Easter time, we proclaim ‘Jesus is alive.’ It is because of His resurrection as well as His death that we have hope. Jesus is alive for evermore. Praise be to God.
