Then Jesus told him, “Because you have seen me, you have believed; blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.”

John 20:29

Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. This is what the ancients were commended for.

By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God’s command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible.

Hebrews 11:1-3

Belief is not merely the intellectual basis for participation in religion; for the Christian, we learn from Scripture that belief and faith in God are the basis for our relationship with Him and a blessing unto itself. We have never seen God but we trust in the relationship we have with him. By that, we access his many great blessings and deepen our relationship further. Being a believer is the only way!
