Faith (13)

What is Faith (Hebrews 11)

  • By faith… some triumphed, some endured

    Every one of God's children lives by faith.  Some are allowed to experience triumphs and joys in this world.  Others are called to endure affliction and apparent failure.  But all are commended for their faith.  And all will share in the everlasting inheritance.

  • By faith… what more can I say?

    God's people have always lived by faith, looking forward in hope, trusting an invisible God.  We must learn to recognise faith in the lives of Old Testament saints.  The judges, David, Samuel, the prophets were all men of faith.

  • By faith… Joshua and Rahab

    All God's elect are saved through faith. But faith may show itself in many very different ways. The faith shown by the Israelites at Jericho was very different from the faith shown by Rahab within the city.  But both were God-given.

  • By faith… Moses persuaded

    Moses had to persuade an entire nation that they were in danger, that there was only one way of escape; that they had to leave Egypt without delay and brave the wilderness.  By faith he rose to the challenge and succeeded.
