An important term for the Christian is “faith.” But what are we talking about when we speak of faith? So often our thinking gets cloudy as we focus on faith.

While faith may be directed toward man, or things, or ideas, in this writing, we are looking at a biblical faith that is directed towards God.

God requires faith for a relationship with Himself. “But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him” (Hebrews 11:6). So, we need to understand faith.
