Memorable Scripture: The Substance of Faith

Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

When I first read this verse I thought it one of the best scriptures I had ever read.
The verses that follow are a testimony of the faith of different individuals over a great span of time.
Everyone has an amount of faith, even atheists have faith to believe there isn’t a God.
Muslims have faith.
Buddhists have faith.
Each “faith” is the substance of what they hope for, that is, for what they believe.
Evolutionists weren’t there to witness anything evolving. Even evolution takes faith.
No one “living” was around when it all began.
It is written (Hebrews 11:3) by faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible.
As a Christian I have faith.
My salvation is by grace through my faith.
And I strive to walk by faith and not by sight.
I have never seen God or an angel, as far as I know. (there is a scripture about that in the future)
I believe I have experienced answers to prayer, witnessed miracles, and felt the presence of the Holy Spirit.
For Christians, faith is tied together with love and with works, according to James.
