How is it important to have faith?
It is impossible to be saved without faith and "without faith it is impossible to please God" Hebrews 11: 6
Everything in salvation is based on faith. We have to believe in that which we cannot see. Faith is a spiritual force that overcomes great opposition and can carry a person through great trials and triumphs over circumstances in the natural realm. See Hebrews Chapter 11, the faith chapter.
Abraham is cited as the 'father' of faith and we as believers come under the Abrahamic covenant, a covenant which Yahweh established with him on the basis of his faith.
Abraham believed God , and it was accounted to him for righteousness. Romans 4: 3 "to him who .. .. believes on Him who justifies the ungodly, his faith is accounted for righteousness" Romans 4: 9
Abraham heard the Word - Romans 4:13 He turned (repentance) - 4:18,19 He embraced the hope - 4:18 He did not waver in his commitment - 4:20 He rejoiced in it as an accomplished fact - 4:20
