Faith is the assurance of things hoped for. What does that mean? According to the book of Hebrews, people like Abraham, Moses and Sarah have given us a clue and a whole lot more. Come delve into Hebrews chapter 11 and discover what it means to live by faith.

 
Week 1: Faith Defined (v 11:1-6)
  • Faith as assurance of things hoped for and evidence of things not seen (vs1)
  • Compare verse 6 to verses 1 and 2 - Faith believes that God is and that he rewards.
  • Verse 3 - an example of believing that God is and that he accomplishes things not seen. 
  • Verse 4-5 - comparing the reward of Abel’s faith to that of Enoch’s faith.
Week 2: Faith in the Promises (v 11:7-19)
  • Noah - faith proceeding from fear of God (v7)
  • Abraham - looking for a city while dwelling in a tent (v8-10)
  • Sarah - trusting the faithfulness of God (v11-12)
  • God is not ashamed of those who desire His promises (v13-19)
 
Week 3: Faith in His Deliverance (v 11:17-31)
  • Abraham & Isaac - obedience unto death (v17-19)
  • Faith for deliverance of future generations (v20-21)
  • Moses - choosing mistreatment over pleasure (v23-27)
  • The Exodus - deliverance for a people (corporate faith) (v28-31) 
 
Week 4: Faith in our Perfecter (11:32 - 12:3)
  • Sometimes success (v32-35)
  • Sometimes suffering (v36-38)
  • But ultimately something better (11:39-40)
  • Jesus the author and perfecter of our faith (12:1-3)
