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.

Moses' Faith IN HIM

Hebrews 11:23-29 • April 15, 2018 • John Anderson

Moses is listed in this famous chapter of scripture - the Hall of Fame of Faith. We learn what important decisions he made in his life that led to a life of faith and trust in God. Would God commend your faith IN HIM today?

Generational 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?

Abraham's Faith In Him

#5 - Hebrews 11:8-19   Genesis 22 • February 18, 2018 • John Anderson

God called Abraham the "father of faith."  We can all learn from his legacy of faith and his heart to follow God in complete trust and dependence!

Noah's Faith In Him

#4 - Hebrews 11:7 • February 11, 2018 • John Anderson

Many heroes of the faith have had to stand alone.  Certainly Noah did, for over a hundred years!  Just what did his great faith accomplish?  Maybe the greatest reward was "the saving of his house", a worthy goal for all of us!

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.
