Living in faith


“These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but seeing them afar off and believing [them] and embracing [them] and confessing that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth. For those that say such things declare plainly that they seek their native country.” (Heb 11:13-14 JB2000)

 “And these all, approved by testimony of faith, received not the promise, God having provided some better thing for us, that [they] without us should not be made perfect.” (Heb 11:39-40 JB2000)

 “For verily I say unto you, That many prophets and righteous [men] have desired to see [those things] which ye see and have not seen [them] and to hear [those things] which ye hear and have not heard [them].” (Mt 13:17 JB2000)

 “Jesus said unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed; blessed [are] those that have not seen and [yet] have believed.” (Joh 20:29 JB2000)

 “For we [are] strangers before thee, and sojourners, as [were] all our fathers; our days on the earth [are] as a shadow, and [there is] no other hope.” (1Ch 29:15 JB2000)

 “Dearly beloved, I beseech [you] as strangers and pilgrims, abstain from the carnal desires which war against the soul” (1Pe 2:11 JB2000)

 “So then, leave all uncleanness and remains of malice and receive with meekness the word ingested within you, which is able to cause your souls to be saved.” (Jas 1:21 JB2000)
