Journey into a Faith-Filled Life will explore the power of God’s Word and the faithful example from the followers of God found in Hebrews Chapter 11. There is much we can learn from these men and women who lived faith-filled lives as a result of God’s grace. God expects us to live faithfully today. Hebrews 11 records characteristics of faithful living as a blueprint for us on faithfulness.
God’s grace that brings salvation also provides Christians the strength to live faithfully. Scripture communicates that grace not only saves, but empowers us to do something. What is it that grace enables us to do? Grace instructs us, “…to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age” (Titus 2:12). Experiencing and understanding grace can help us live faith-filled lives.
What does faithfulness to God look like? This is where this 11th chapter of Hebrews becomes especially beneficial in a person’s faith journey. Reflecting on the biblical text, coupled with the illustrations and stories found in this book, will strengthen our faith in God. Our conviction in the Bible is God-inspired and filled with God-breathed words that are living and active will also deepen (2 Timothy 3:16, Hebrews 4:12).
The Bible is more than a good storybook; it is a book on how to live life in every generation. The Bible is our manual for living faith-filled lives. There are too many people in the world de-emphasizing the importance of following God’s instruction manual for life.
