One of our other authors, Michele, asked me to post the last several Hebrews interactive studies for her. I hope you’ve been reading through Hebrews with her as much as I have!
In Chapter 11 we are told about faith.
“Faith is what our mind has that our emotions cannot change.”
I may be paraphrasing this quote from C.S. Lewis in “Mere Christianity” but I feel this is one of the best definitions I have ever heard. As humans, our emotions can cause us to cycle back and forth on the way we feel, but our faith is something that our brain should never question.
Through our faith we come to understand the grace given to us. But we cannot come to faith without scripture. All of this works together to provide us with the food we need to mature in our faith.
