Scripture: Hebrew 11:6 "Now without faith it is impossible to please God, for the one who draws near to Him must believe that He exists and rewards those who seek Him."

Encouragement: It is impossible to please God without faith. Ultimately, saving faith is a gift from God (Eph. 2:8) and His Spirit grows our faith through interaction with His word. Romans 10:17 states, "So faith comes from hearing, and hearing by the word of Christ." The more we faithfully and regularly interact with the Bible and live out our faith each day; the more we will see our faith grow.

Prayer: Pray for grace to be diligent in studying and hearing God's word. Pray for yourself and every member of City Church to crave the Bible.
