Monday, Feb. 24, 2020 - True Bible Heroes: We Need Them Today
February 24, 2020
A week ago today we observed President’s Day a great time to think of heroes. Heb Chapter 11 – the Bible’s hall of fame – says heroes trust God and walk by faith. Walking by faith is righteous but walking by sight is sin. Pastors, parents, elected officials, if you wish to be a hero in God’s eyes, trust God implicitly, defend truth courageously and embrace moral integrity passionately. In II Kings 6:17, Elisha asked God to open his servant’s eyes so he could see what Elisha- by faith- was already seeing - a mountain full of flaming horses and chariots guarding the man of faith. Be assured. Those powerful in faith can see things others can’t see- and do things others can’t do.

During this week's series, we'll identify 4 reasons why God says He won’t answer some prayers. While praying is good. Praying in obedience to God and according to His will with faith believing is essential.
