Faith Pleases God

We've already seen that it takes faith to believe in the existence of God because He is unseen.  We can see what God has done but we can't see Him.  Simply believing that God exists is not the kind of faith that the writer of Hebrews is talking about however.

James 2:19 says, "You believe that there is one God. Good! Even the demons believe that—and shudder."  Belief in God is not enough, the last part of the verse is very important.  We must act on our faith in the existence of God.

Millions upon millions of people believe in God and then shrug their shoulders and move on with their lives.  These people either don't believe in heaven and hell or assume that they are basically a good person so they deserve to go to heaven.

God is more than just the Creator.  An acknowledgement that God exists is nowhere near the same as believing that He is holy, just, loving, righteous, etc.  Those who truly believe in God believe in the whole person of God with all of His attributes. 

If we really have faith in God - not just some generic cosmic creator - then we know that we must earnestly seek Him.  This is crucial to our understanding of God and our faith.
