“Faith” John 11:14-27

What is faith? Hebrews 11 tells us “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” Substance means a setting or a place under, in this context, it is how we commit ourselves to Christ, not what He has done for us. Faith is also the conviction of things not seen so to combine the two, faith is setting ourselves under His authority and trusting in His care even when we see no proof. But what does faith look like? Can we recognize faith in the waiting? Can we see it before the miracle? In our passage this morning we see the faith of two individuals who often are looked at from a negative viewpoint, Thomas and Martha. This morning I pray we would see that faith is not how we get God to move, but it is how we give ourselves to Him.
