Faith is indispensable. We must believe that ** He exists  ** He is the rewarder of those who earnestly seek Him. The faith spoken of here is faith in the God of holy scripture, and in Jesus Heb 1:1-2. This world's faith is like the Irish countryside with its 40 shades of green. Doctrinal truth is not important, they say, one only needs to love Jesus. The object of this faith is fickle, insecure and yields to external pressure. Heb 1:1 Faith is not some sort of blind faith. "It demonstrates to the eye of the mind the reality of those things that cannot be discerned by the eye of the body." 1Pet1:8-9 You have never seen the Lord Jesus and yet you love Him. And you believe in Him. And even more, you rejoice with joy inexpressible! Because you have been saved. Ephesians 2:8 This faith is a gift of God.  Phil 1:29 Granted to you that you believe in Him . . . 2Pet1:1 They had obtained a faith of equal standing as Peter's own. All we have and are, we owe to God. To be able to know without a shadow of doubt (as against in an airy-fairy way), their relationship with this God. Just as by faith we know the reality of heaven, we also know the reality of hell. The only One who can give people faith to escape and flee is the One who gave us our faith and we must plead before Him for souls. Let us persevere in this faith till the day we see the One who died for us.
