Now faith is the substance of things hoped for,
the evidence of things not seen.
Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.
Keeping Alert wrote:faith is the "evidence" of things not seen... well, there are 2 types of people - those with faith and those without faith... how did this faith come about... by diligently seeking (verse 6) or did that diligent seeking a result of that faith given by the invisible God?
You mentioned Hebrews 11 v 6. One source of faith for belief in God is seen in Romans 10 v 13-17:
13. for, "Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved."
14. How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? 15. And how can they preach unless they are sent? As it is written, "How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!"
16. But not all the Israelites accepted the good news. For Isaiah says, "Lord, who has believed our message?" 17. Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word of Christ.
1 Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.
