Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see. This is what the ancients were commended for. Hebrews 11:1-2
In the next few weeks I will be going through the Hall of Faith in Hebrews 11. I will spend at least one day on each of those mentioned in this chapter.
Entire libraries have been written about faith. We have a sure hope in Jesus although we do not see Him. A number of years ago, Larry King asked Billy Graham, “do you have any doubt about your eternal destiny?” Absolutely not. King asked the question a number of different ways, and Mr. Graham's response was the same: “I have a hope, and this hope is Jesus.” Without hesitation. Without fear. Period. Paragraph.
Those "cloud of witnesses” who have gone before us in Hebrews 11 have left us with a fantastic legacy. We would do well to remember their faith and courage. We don't have all the facts about end times and the future and what will happen when we pass on, but we do have enough information to see us through.
