Some Heroes of Faith
Already we’ve read that faith is the substance of things hoped for the evidence of things not seen and that by faith God created the heavens and earth. Also we are told by faith the elders obtained a good report.

Hebrews 11- 1-3. “By faith Abel made to God a more excellent sacrifice than his brother Cain. By faith Enoch was translated from earth to heaven without undergoing physical death. By faith Noah and his family were spared when God destroyed the earth with a flood. By faith Abraham obeyed God, went to the land of promise, waited many years for his promised son and then obeyed to sacrifice that son until God withheld his raised hand.  By faith Jacob while dying blessed the sons of Joseph. By faith Joseph was faithful to God while living in Egypt and God rewarded him. By faith Moses’ mother hid him from the pharaoh and then by faith he refused to be called the son of the pharaoh’s daughter. By faith Moses led the children of Israel forty years and crossed the Red Sea on dry ground. By faith the people marched around the walls of Jericho and they fell. By faith Rahab and her family were saved when her city was destroyed”.

Prayer:
Heavenly Father, space is too limited to list all who contributed to the cause of Christ, but each will be rewarded according to Your will. May each of us continue to serve as long as possible. We pray this in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
