Hebrews 11, part 1

This Sunday we are starting in on the famous 11th chapter of Hebrews, sometimes called "the hall of faith". It marks many Old Testament individuals for the faith they displayed in well-known (and less familiar) recorded Bible histories. But we have to have the foundation first.

All of these examples of living by faith in the living God are coming on the heels of the monumental explanation of the work of Christ for us. It is because of His sacrifice that we are even in a position to hope to approach God, and once we have Christ in our lives by faith, He sends us right back to the beginning, and walks us through the many examples of those who came before us.

Without faith in Christ, we will not have a proper faith or understanding of the rest of God's Word, of which He is the centre, even as He said, "You search the Scriptures....they testify of Me".

This Sunday we will by no means complete the whole chapter, but we will get a good foundational start. Join us for fellowship and then a potluck after service to kick off the Christmas season!
