Hebrews 11. The Faith chapter of the Bible. If you've read it before, you know the list of "super saints" it gives from the Old Testament. As I read it this morning I became aware of something new for me. Even though these men and women had faith to move mountains, they missed out on something...
Hebrews 11:13- These all died in their faith, not having received the things promised... And 11:39- And all of these, though commended through their faith, did not receive what was promised (ESV)
These men and women of extreme faith did not receive what was promised to them, Jesus, but we did. Because of the faith of these people from long ago, and the amazing things they trusted in God to accomplish, we benefit from it.
Now my question for me and you. What is our faith, or lack of faith going to give the people who are coming after us?
Have a great day.
For starters: I am nothing special, I love Jesus and He is my Lord. I am the husband of a godly woman. She is working with me to raise a godly child. I am a teacher. I love to read and write.
