Hebrews 11, part 2

This Sunday we are continuing our considerations of this landmark chapter of Scripture. Our lives are to be lived by faith, not by our own human reason or logic, and certainly not by our circumstances. We are spiritual beings, and the spiritual realm is unseen, so we must live in a different way--we must live by faith.  This chapter is all about active faith, not just mental agreement that God is, for even the demons believe and tremble, we are told. Our faith needs to act on the understanding of who God is and His position as ruler of the universe, and thankfully, we have many good examples of people who lived just this way to encourage and inspire us to do the same.
