Faith: It's A Given, And Yet We Struggle To Grasp It

Hebrews 11:6--"But without faith it is imposssible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him."

In This Life, Fallible Men Administer The Law

Hebrews 7:28--"For the law appoints as high priests men who have weakness, but the word of the oath, which came after the law, appoints the Son who has been perfected forever."
