How many times have you come to the place where you’re really doubting your ability to do something and just exclaim – “I can’t do it!” At times we feel this way in our spiritual life, especially when we’re tempted to compare ourselves to others. We could even feel that way after reading a chapter […]
The question we consider this morning as we conclude our study in the Hall of Faith found in Hebrews 11 is this: What role does our faith in God play in determining God’s involvement in our lives? The answer is found as we consider the laundry list of experiences that God’s people endured. May we […]
We all face the pressure to conform. This can be good when the peer pressure keeps us from sin. But it can also be bad when the pack mentality leads us to forsake the way of obedience to God’s will. This morning we come to the expressions of faith being displayed by Moses and his […]
We all desire to stay faithful to Jesus, even to the end of our lives. This morning we consider the faith of two men whose lives saw their faith remain steadfast even to the end. May their example inspire us to obey to the end through the power of His Spirit!

While we like the ease of shopping on the internet, the main drawback is that we can’t replicate actually seeing and touching the product. As our author transitions to chapter 11, he does so with the desire to offer some actual “see and feel” illustrations of faith in action. May these expressions of faith serve […]
