The Animation Principle

Hebrews 11 gives us a Biblical definition of authentic faith. Authentic faith is a performative thing, not merely a cerebral one. It is activating. Real faith performs, it acts and obeys. It animates obedience in the life of the person who possesses it. Hebrews 11 calls attention to all that the Old Testament saints did, not just what they believed. Obedience is not an optional addition to faith; it is faith itself gone public.
