Abel brought acceptable offerings to God. Noah built an ark to save his family from the coming flood, and Abraham moved from his homeland looking for a city that has foundations, whose designer and builder was God. What caused them to do those things? What causes you to live your life the way you live it? What guiding principle drives you everyday? In this message, R.C. Sproul takes us to the eleventh chapter of Hebrews to remind us of the essential element needed for a life of pleasing God.
The Christian life is one of endurance. Yet sometimes, many times in fact, our faith wanes and weakens. What shall we do in those times? Scripture tells us to look to the author and perfector of our faith, Jesus. But is it unbiblical to look to others as well? Can we have so called “heroes” of the faith to look to for encouragement? In this message, R.C. Sproul returns again to the eleventh chapter of Hebrews to show us how we can strengthen our faith as we look to the lives of others gone before us.
