The pleasure of faith

Hebrews 11:6 tells us that without faith it is impossible to please God. This can seem like one of those harsh and condemning verses – actually it is such good news. All of us have times when we have to hang on with gritted teeth. God seems distant or we cannot feel his love. At these moment, it really is faith and not feelings that keeps us holding onto God. If it is faith that brings him pleasure, then these moments of seeming darkness for us are touches of light for him.
