Without faith it is impossible to please God.
1. Faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. Heb 11:1
"So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen as temporary, but what is unseen is eternal." 2 Cor 4:18
2. What authentic faith does:
a. The example of the righteousness of Abel.
b. The example of how Enoch walked with God.
c. The example of the obedience of Noah.
3. Faith is essential for our salvation.
