Passage: Hebrews 11:1-3
Faith is a complicated term. Ask ten people what it is and you are likely to get ten different definitions. But as evangelical Protestants who take the doctrine of sola fide (faith alone) seriously, we need to get our understanding of true, saving faith, not from the culture, or our own wishes, or even from the theological academics, but directly from the Word of God. Then, understanding the true nature of saving faith, we can take a look at our own hearts and lives to see if our faith matches up with the biblical teaching.
