What is faith? It is the confident assurance that what we hope for is going to happen. It is the evidence of things we cannot yet see.
Salvation that comes from trusting Christ--which is the message we preach--is already within easy reach. In fact, the Scriptures say, "The message is close at hand; it is on your lips and in your heart."
For if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by confessing with your mouth that you are saved.As the Scriptures tell us, "Anyone who believes in him will not be disappointed.Jew and Gentile are the same in this respect. They all have the same Lord, who generously gives his riches to all who ask for them.For "Anyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved."
2 Peter 1:4
And by that same mighty power, he has given us all of his rich and wonderful promises. He has promised that you will escape the decadence all around you caused by evil desires and that you will share in his divine nature.
If we belong to Jesus Christ, it means nothing to have or not to have gone through the religious act of becoming a Jew. But faith working through love is important.
So, you see, it is impossible to please God without faith. Anyone who wants to come to him must believe that there is a God and that he rewards those who sincerely seek him.
