Faith in Action
(Hebrews 11:1-3) Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. (2)This is what the ancients were commended for. (3)By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God’s command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible.
Hebrews 11:6) And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.
- Don’t Stop! Keep Moving Forward
(John 10:27) My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me.
(Ephesians 6:10-11) Finally, be strong in the Lord and his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.
- We are Going to Keep Moving Forward
(Hebrews 11:13-16) All these people were still living by faith when they died. They did not receive the things promised; they only saw them and welcomed them from a distance, admitting that they were foreigners and strangers on earth. (14)People who say such things show that they are looking for a country of their own. (15)If they had been thinking of the country they had left, they would have had opportunity to return. (16)Instead, they were longing for a better country—a heavenly one.
