This Sunday, Pastor Chuck Swindoll will introduce a new series on the “Following in the Footsteps of the Faithful.” Full context of the section spans Hebrews 10 through 12, but the main message of the writer is contained in Hebrews 11. Here we find one “hero of the faith” after another, who trusted God while facing enormous challenges against incredible odds.
Faith shows the reality of what we hope for; it is the evidence of things we cannot see. Through their faith, the people in days of old earned a good reputation. (Hebrews 11:1-2)
