Faith has a static and dynamic quality. The static quality of faith is the state of faith that saves; allegiance. The dynamic quality of faith is an ongoing outpouring of faith; exercise, sanctification – virtue. the dynamic faith we live is an outpouring of the static faith that we possess.

The static quality of our faith that we can rely on. It’s an anchor, a confidence that goes back to our forefathers and will be present throughout this age. It is our hope and proof of our eternal standing before God. The Kingdom of God lies before us. Our faith is foundational. Our allegiance to Christ is the basis of our unchanging, unwavering hope - the proof of what we cannot see (Hebrews 11:1-2). We don’t see the Kingdom of God, but we experience the Kingdom of God. We experience our faith in three ways:

* Experience of the Kingdom through relationship with God

* Experience of the Kingdom through the church

* Experience of the Kingdom through the wisdom of God in the scriptures

There is also a dynamic nature to our faith that affects how we live out our faith in day-to-day life. The Author of Hebrews gives us 3 expressions of dynamic faith that come from the OT scriptures:

* Creation from Nothing: Belief in the Creator (Hebrews 11:3)

* Cain and Abel: Acceptable Worship (Hebrews 11:4)

* Enoch: Living to Please God (Hebrews 11:5)

We please God through our faith (Hebrews 11:6). Without faith, it is impossible to please God. But he rewards those who seek him.
