Faith In Him
A Study Through The Hall Of Faith
Our Faith IN HIM
Hebrews 12:1-2 • May 13, 2018 • John Anderson
In Hebrews chapter 11 we examined the faith of many of the Old Testament heroes; not perfect people, but people of great faith! Chapter 12 begins by encouraging us to run our race of faith with a look at our supreme example, the Lord Jesus Christ. Don't let anything deter you from running with patience and faith the race that God has designed for you!
Ordinary People with an Extraordinary God
Hebrews 11:32-40 • May 6, 2018 • John Anderson
In this chapter that rehearses the Hall of Fame of Faith, we see person after person who acted by faith and accomplished great things for God. But not all of their stories had a happy ending, and many died in faith seeing only a shadow of the promise that we present-day believers have experienced in substance. God still received glory from them all!
Strong and Simple Faith IN HIM pt2
Hebrews 11:30-31 • April 29, 2018 • John Anderson
We would expect to see Joshua in the Hall of Fame of Faith, but Rahab? Seems like such an unlikely candidate, but one nonetheless who acted on what little knowledge she had about God! It's not the amount of our faith, but the object of our faith that is important.
Strong And Simple Faith In Him
Hebrews 11:30-31 • April 22, 2018 • John Anderson
Though not listed by name in the Hall of Faith in Hebrews 11, Joshua’s strong faith is certainly commended. For it was his faith that brought down the mighty walls of Jericho. The strength of his faith was not found in the amount of faith but in the object of his faith.
Hebrews 11:20-22 • March 18, 2018 • John Anderson
Are you passing on your faith to the next generation? These heroes of the faith did, and so can we! Here are some very practical suggestions of things to do that will build faith in your children and grandchildren and will encourage them to have a real and meaningful relationship with their God.
Sarah's Faith In Him
Hebrews 11:11-12 Genesis 12 and 18 Romans 4 • March 11, 2018 • John Anderson
The first woman mentioned in the Hall of Fame of Faith - but we wouldn't characterize her as a woman of faith in some of her early responses to God! How did her struggling faith turn into successful faith?
Enoch's Faith IN HIM
#3 - Hebrews 11:5-6 Genesis 5 • January 21, 2018 • John Anderson
Enoch, seventh from Adam, is a somewhat obscure figure in scripture. But what little is revealed about him in just a few short verses speaks volumes to us today about his faith and trust in God. His life is a consistent example of being in fellowship with the Father!
Abel's Faith IN HIM
#2 - Hebrews 11:4 | Genesis 4 • January 14, 2018 • John Anderson
The story of Cain and Abel shows the two classes of people who approach the eternal God - only religious or truly righteous. Discover how Abel's faith received the Word of God, rejected works and responded in worship. He being dead "yet speaketh"!
Faith In Him
#1 - Hebrews 10:38 - 11:6 • January 7, 2018 • John Anderson
New Testament faith is simply looking to Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, and taking Him at His Word. This kind of faith produces a new dynamic in the life of a believer, in our spiritual wisdom, worship and daily walk.
