Passage: Hebrews 11:8-12 Speaker: Pastor Will Galkin Series: Faith Lives

Length: 55 mins 16 secs Plays: 1355

Speaker: Will Galkin - The book of Hebrews cab be read in about 45 minutes. Throughout the book, the reader encounters the tension of being exhorted to persevere in faith and be encouraged that God will faithfully preserve those that are His. The focus of the Christian's faith must be Jesus Christ. The author of Hebrews reminds the reader that Jesus is better. He is better than the angles, Moses, and the high priestly system. He is the object and finisher of our faith. Hebrews chapter 11 showcases broken snits of old who demonstrate what a life of faith looks like. Last week we walked through the lives of Able, Enoch, and Noah. This week we begin a section that focuses on the Patriarchs specifically Abraham. These examples are given to Christians as a reminder to press on. But we are not of those who shrink back and are destroyed, but of those who have faith and preserve their souls.
