Hebrews 10:32-39

32Think back on those early days when you first learned about Christ. Remember how you remained faithful even though it meant terrible suffering. 33Sometimes you were exposed to public ridicule and were beaten, and sometimes you helped others who were suffering the same things. 34You suffered along with those who were thrown into jail, and when all you owned was taken from you, you accepted it with joy. You knew there were better things waiting for you that will last forever.

35So do not throw away this confident trust in the Lord. Remember the great reward it brings you! 36Patient endurance is what you need now, so that you will continue to do God’s will. Then you will receive all that he has promised.

37“For in just a little while,
the Coming One will come and not delay.
38And my righteous ones will live by faith.
But I will take no pleasure in anyone who turns away.”

39But we are not like those who turn away from God to their own destruction. We are the faithful ones, whose souls will be saved.

DEVOTIONAL QUESTIONS

Q: Can you have faith in God, but not trust? What about the other way around? Are they separate or do they compliment each other? Is one more important? How do they play a role in your growth as a Christian?

Q: How do you build your faith? How do you grow your trust? How do you know if you are growing in these areas? Should there be evidence of these in your life? What should that evidence look like?

Q: When you are praying for a miracle, do you need more faith or more trust? How vital are they both while you are waiting for God to move? When God does move in your life, is it easier to have faith and trust the next time you find yourself struggling?
