Getting Into The Bible: What is Faith?

Friday 18th November 2016

Read: Psalm 139

We hear the word faith being used regularly – both in and out of the church, but how should we understand it, and where does it come from?

Hebrews 11 is known as the ‘faith’ chapter as it describes several examples of faith and why it is important to have faith as a Christian.

Voice & Contestant game 

  • Set up a small obstacle course
  • Divide the group into pairs
  • One will be the ‘voice’ and the other one, ‘the contestant’ will be blindfolded
  • The ‘voice’ will have to direct their partner to safety at the finish of the course
  • When you shout “start”, all the ‘voices’ have to provide directions to their partners simultaneously
  • First ‘contestant’ to cross the line wins!

This game is an example of how difficult it can be to follow instructions when you have many distractions. Even though we can hear the voice, it is sometimes not clear if this is the way to safety.

In Hebrews 11:1 we are told that it is faith which gives us the strength to follow that ‘Voice’, even when we are not sure where it is leading us, but to know that it is the best route to fulfilling our lives.
