Critical Faith Investigation

Hebrews 11:1-3

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. For by it the elders obtained a good report. Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear. Hebrews 11:1-3

As we look at the breakdown of the message it is clear that we must understand the importance of examining where we stand in our Faith. Let me give an expository breakdown of the word Faith. When we were little children and our parents asked us every year about two to three months before the holidays or our birthdays what we wanted. And we eagerly prepared the list of desires we had within our little minds yet every year they managed to produce the list and we as children looked up to them even more in our belief that they could do the impossible. If we think about this level of Faith that we had as children and look into the word of God in Mark 9:37 Whosoever shall receive one of such children in my name, receiveth me: and whosoever shall receive me, receiveth not me but him that sent me. Think about this point as we all have aged overtime we waiver in our Faith with doubt, fears, and questions not having that Faith like we did as the innocents of children. Therefore in this message there are 2 key points we have to address

1. How powerful is your Faith

2. Are you running and Shining in your Faith

3. The ABC’s of Faith

See when I researched just the word FAITH I found that HOPE is an important factor in this message for Hope is the key factor to how effective we are in our walk in Faith. Let me give it to this way Just as Grace and Mercy, Love and Patience walk together HOPE and FAITH walk the same way. Therefore in the book of Hebrews itself is a combination of Letters giving a direct understanding of the portrayal of Jesus Christ as our Intercessor at the Throne. It is clear that we as Christians deserve better in every way. We must recognize that the Book Hebrews has been considered the fifth Gospel for it describes Christ’s ministry in heaven at the right hand of God the father. Therefore think about it when you hear these two words Critical and Investigation the first thing that generally comes to mind is there is a something drastically wrong such as a medical test that you await the lab technicians to test. Or there is criminal matter that is a strong concern for the communities and the police are doing a deep investigation. But when we think of being critical regarding our individual FAITH are we true to ourselves in our mirror examination of how effective is our FAITH. Turn to your neighbor and say neighbor; you can wake up now the preacher is done with just the introduction.

During the time of World War II there was a prisoner in Auschwitz concentration camp by the name of Dr. Viktor Frankl and Austrian psychiatrist who during his years of captivity observed how some people survived the divesting camps they were placed in and others did not. He states:
