Hebrews 11:6 ” And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to Him must believe that He exists and that He rewards those who earnestly seek Him.”

Within the words of this verse lies the Litmus Test of Christianity…for it separates the true Believer from the wanna-be, only on Sundays, if it suits the occasion, believer. We all know people like this…ones that rely on man-made ceremonies and observances to pin their faith on, rather than putting their actual trust in Jesus Christ. The Writer of Hebrews tells us elsewhere, “One Who has become a priest not on the basis of a regulation as to His ancestry but on the basis of the power of an indestructible life. The former regulation is set aside because it was weak and useless (for the Law made nothing perfect), and a better hope is introduced, by which we draw near to God.” (Hebrews 7: 16, 18-19) Our hope can only be in Jesus Christ…for as we draw near to Him, He forgives us of our sins, by suffering in our place the penalty to which we were subjected to, and then giving us the gift of eternal life.
