Walking by Faith
The Bible says that without faith it is impossible to please God.
Hebrews 11:1 and 2 tells us: ”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.”
Between May and July 2019, we are going to see what it was about these “ancients” that made them take bold steps in obedience to God, and how those steps of faith changed the course of history.
All of these principles we can apply to both our individual lives and the life of the church today.
