“Now faith is the SUBSTANCE of things hoped for, the EVIDENCE of things not seen.”
Substance means – the real physical matter of which a person or thing consists and which has a tangible, solid presence; the most important or essential part of something; the real or essential meaning (Oxford dictionary)
The most important? The essential part? Who else in heaven or on earth can such meaning fit so perfectly? Who is the essential and important part of our faith? The real meaning and the Solid proof our faith?
There’s none other except our Lord Jesus Christ. The fullness of God dwells in Him bodily which includes the fullness of our faith. He is the Substance, the Evidence, the Tangibility, the Reality of our hope in God, the Author and the Finisher of everything we pray and desire from God. The Proof that God answers prayers, the core undeniable evidence that with God all things are possible. For how can we explain the miracle of the virgin birth? Or fathom a logical reason for how God came and dwelt with man? Or even explain the empty grave and resurrection? The evidence of these truths is found in Him alone.
Jesus- the absolute evidence of God’s existence to man.
He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?
