Hebrews 11 8 By faith Abraham, when called to go to a place he would later receive as his inheritance, obeyed and went, even though he did not know where he was going. 9 By faith he made his home in the promised land like a stranger in a foreign country; he lived in tents, as did Isaac and Jacob, who were heirs with him of the same promise. 10 For he was looking forward to the city with foundations, whose architect and builder is God.


- an ancient compounding of the verb BE and the noun LIFE. ⁃The root meaning did not originally mean nodding an intellectual assent; It meant “to give my heart to” or “to hold dear” or “to LOVE” ⁃Abraham trusted God as a beloved more than that Abraham intellectually assented to ideas about God.   ⁃Real question of believer - “who are you going to ‘belove’? Who are you going to give your whole self to?”
