“Without Faith, You Cannot Please God” (Hebrews 11:1-6) I. Introduction. A. Orientation. What is God looking for in His people? What is He looking for in you? That’s what we’ve been considering Over the past several Lord’s Days. It’s not hard to figure out If you read His Word. He wants you to have a heart That is devoted to Him – completely. He wants you to have a heart That is concerned for those around you – As concerned as you are for yourself. He wants your heart To be set on the things of heaven And the honors God gives – Not on the honors this world has to give. And He wants you To love His truth

Jude writes, “Beloved, while I was making every effort to write you about our common salvation, I felt the necessity to write to you appealing that you contend earnestly for
the faith
 which was once for all handed down to the saints” (1:3). If you want to please God, You need to know the Gospel – Narrowly: what it teaches About the only way of salvation From God’s judgment for your sins; And more broadly: what the Lord calls you to do In every area of life. If you don’t know His truth and believe it – And contend for it – You can’t please God. Second, it can mean receiving the Gospel – Actually placing your whole hope of heaven on Jesus – Trusting Him, His work: His life, death, resurrection and ascension –
