Reverent Faith: Noah

01/18/15

Speaker: Mark Petersburg

Series: Faith: What It is, What It Isn't

Category: Faith

Summary: The Old Testament character Noah is one of those “persons of faith” who are mentioned in the Faith Chapter of the Bible - Hebrews, chapter eleven. What is interesting is the connection between his obedient faith and his reverent fear of the Lord. It was his holy fear, his reverent awe of the Lord that led him to obey God’s command to build the ark. God still looks for those who will in reverent fear walk with him and obey him. We discover in our own spiritual experience that reverent faith is expressed by obedient faith.

Confident Faith: Abel

Category: Faith

Summary: The writer of the New Testament book of Hebrews illustrates what faith is in the lives of Old Testament characters. In what many call the Faith Chapter of the Bible, Hebrews 11, the first person he highlights is Abel. We see in Abel’s life obedient faith. Some instruction must have been given as to what was acceptable worship to God. As a result of his obedience, Genesis 4 says that “God had regard for Abel and his sacrifice.” If we believe God, obedience is the result. Faith that pleases God is an obedient faith.

Faith: What It Is; What It Isn't

Summary: The writer of the New Testament book of Hebrews makes this significant statement: “Without faith it is impossible to please God.” If faith is that important, then it is imperative that we understand what faith is. The Bible doesn’t really define faith; rather, it describes and illustrates faith. Hebrews 11:1 describes faith in two parallel ways: a sense of assurance within us and a certainty of realities unseen by our human eyes. Understanding what faith is, and what it is not, forms the foundation of seeing faith demonstrated in the lives of those who are listed in the “Hall of Faith” (Hebrews, chapter 11).
