The Hall of Faith
People who love Jesus live by faith. Faith is when you believe something that you have not seen. Faith is trusting God. By faith, we believe that God is who He says He is and that He will do everything He said He will do.
Many people in the Bible had faith, and this pleased God. Abel had faith. He made an offering to God, and God accepted it. Noah had faith too. He believed God when God told him to build an ark and rescue his family. God was pleased with Noah.
Abraham had faith when God told him to leave his home. God made promises to Abraham, and Abraham believed that God was going to keep His promises.
Abraham’s wife Sarah had faith. She trusted God to give her a family even though she was too old to have children. God gave Abraham and Sarah a big family.
Isaac, Jacob, Joseph, and Moses had faith. Rahab had faith when she hid the Israelite spies in Jericho. King David had faith too. All of these people trusted God, and so did many others. Having faith was not easy. Many suffered, and they all died before God’s greatest promise—the arrival of Jesus—came true, but they believed that God had a wonderful plan. God was pleased with them because they trusted Him.
Christ Connection: God kept His promise to send His own Son to save people from sin. Jesus is the only true hero of the Bible. He trusted in God’s plan and died on the cross. Jesus gives us faith. One day Jesus will come back, just like God promised.
