Hebrews 11:1-7 (Hebrews 11:1-7)Tim Douglass, October 8, 2017
Part of the Letter to the Hebrews series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
From the definition and source of our faith we now move to the list of examples of the heroes of faith throughout history. This isn’t just history, it is inspiration. The writer wants his readers to be moved by the accounts of faith in those who came before so that they not only see these examples of faith but are able to use them to strengthen their own walk. We are reminded that only through faith can we please God and are encouraged in our faith so that we may seek Him.

1Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. 2For by it the elders obtained a good report. 3Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear. 4By faith Abel offered unto God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, by which he obtained witness that he was righteous, God testifying of his gifts: and by it he being dead yet speaketh. 5By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death; and was not found, because God had translated him: for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God. 6But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him. 7By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by the which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith. (KJV)
