Without faith it is impossible to please God.
The reason for this is that “whatsoever is not of faith is sin” (Rom. 14:23), and of course sin cannot please God.
This is why it is that…
“The knowledge of what the Scripture means when urging upon us the necessity of cultivating faith is more essential than any other knowledge that can be acquired.”
