Faith is a word often used, but rarely explained. It is often used as a synonym for religion, hope, beliefs and spirituality. However, when I read the Bible, I find something much more radical, even revolutionary.
In this series, I want us to define faith through the lives of those exemplified it. Rather than provide lexical studies or etymological research on the word,
the author of Hebrews simply says, “Let me show…” (Hebrews 11).
In the next three weeks, I want us to look at three lives who exemplified faith. Three people who took seriously the bravery and bizarreness of this virtue. I believed we will be both surprised by their courage and inspired by their tenacity.
There is always a temptation to dial down biblical truths to fit our current reality. We either elevate the Biblical character as the exception or exempt ourselves from stepping into dynamics that just seem out there.
Let’s take a fresh look on a familiar theme and find a new perspective on the course of our lives.
“Through faith [they] conquered kingdoms, administered justice, and gained what was promised,” (Hebrews 11:33).
