Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. For by it the people of old received their commendation. By faith we understand that the universe was created by the word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things that are visible. (Hebrews 11:1-3 ESV)
Hymn ELH 363:1-3 Thou Art the Way
Thou art the Way; to Thee alone
From sin and death we flee;
And he who would the Father seek
Must seek Him, Lord, by Thee.
Thou art the Truth; Thy Word alone
True wisdom can impart.
Thou only can inform the mind
And purify the heart.
Thou art the Life; the rending tomb
Proclaims Thy conquering arm;
And those who put their trust in Thee
Not death nor hell shall harm.
Heavenly Father, through Your Word, all things came into being. Help me always to trust in Your Word as the only source of truth for my life. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
