Faith in God

Faith is the substance of things hoped for. Hebrews 11:1

 Faith must have an object. We don't simply have faith; we have faith in something or someone. Faith in "faith" is meaningless.
 For the Christian there is only one object for faith: the living God. Anything less is insubstantial, unreal, even deceptive. Our faith is in the God who created this world and came down to earth  in the person of His Son, Jesus Christ. We put our faith in Christ because He alone is the Savior. The Bible says, "Through Him (you) believe in God, who raised Him from the dead and gave Him glory, so that your faith and hope are in God" (1 Peter 1:21).
 People today put their faith in all kinds of ideas and beliefs, from astrology and alleged "spirit guides" to science and humanism. But only Christ reveals God to us, and only He can bridge the gap between us and God a gap caused by sin. Do not be deceived or misled. Only Christ is worthy of your faith.
