Elder’s Headline

Our general theme for preaching during October is “Faith Builders” and as I have been considering this the obvious chapter to read is Hebrews 11 which is the Faith Hall of Fame! Here the author reviews the lives of some of the Old Testament giants of faith. However, the picture of faith presented here doesn’t conform to any easy formula. It would appear that sometimes faith leads to victory and success but at other times it requires determined effort just to keep going. The foundation for both is that God is in ultimate control and will keep His promises, although there is no guarantee whether that will happen in this life or the next. So whatever trials you may be facing don’t lose heart, be encouraged. Heb. 11v16: “God is not ashamed to be called their God, for he has prepared a city for them”. Bryan
