Day 19 Hebrews 12:18-29

Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. For by it the people of old received their commendation. By faith we understand that the universe was created by the word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things that are visible.” Heb. 11:1-3

“For you have not come to what may be touched…But you have come to Mount Zion…—in order that the things that cannot be shaken may remain.”  Heb.12:18ff

It occurs to me that faith believes in the invisible.  Faith believes in the things that remain after all the shaking is finished.  And though some actually saw Jesus a long time ago my faith must believe in a God I cannot see and a kingdom I cannot substantiate by pointing to a map. And in spite of it all being invisible my response is to be gratitude, worship, reverence and awe.

That’s asking a lot isn’t it?

I know it’s crazy but I buy it.  I buy all of it.

About God?
“To the King of the ages, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen.”  1 Tim. 1:17

About Me?
“By faith…he endured as seeing him who is invisible.” (Heb. 11:27) Me too Lord, me too.

About the World?
For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse. Rom. 1:20
