Faith is believing in God

Faith is being certain of what

we do not see (Hebrews 11:1)

Faith is following God

We walk by faith not by sight

(2 Corinthians 5:7)


boldness.

…what is it?

Lack of hesitation or fear in the face of

actual or possible danger; courage, bravery

…why do we need it (in our faith)?

Because God asks us to do difficult and scary things.

…how do we get it?
