Now without faith it is impossible to please God, since the one who draws near to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him. Hebrews 11:6

This verse is one of the most explicit calls to faith in God that we have in the Bible.  The entirety of chapter 11 is both a call to maintain the faith that we have in God and a variety of descriptions of how this faith is maintained. We see in the lives of God's people what the genuine and true outcome of faith is. Each character experienced a particular blessing, but faith in Jesus Christ goes beyond any blessing that we are able to experience on this earth. Instead, faith draws us into something more meaningful for the rest of eternity.
