Hebrews 11:5-6 (MSG)
By an act of faith, Enoch skipped death completely. “They looked all over and couldn’t find him because God had taken him.” We know on the basis of reliable testimony that before he was taken “he pleased God.” It’s impossible to please God apart from faith. And why? Because anyone who wants to approach God must believe both that he exists and that he cares enough to respond to those who seek him.
FAITH is what pleases God!
Imagine if you had the ability to help someone, told them you would, but they didn’t believe you were kind enough to follow through with your words.
In him and through faith in him we may approach God with freedom and confidence.
Ephesians 3:12 (NIV)
