Join us for our new sermon series, Olympic Faith!
SUNDAY WORSHIP: SUNDAY, July 31, 2016 ~ 9 AM & 11 AM:
PREPARE FOR WORSHIP:
We continue our series on “Olympic Faith” with the sermon, “Empowering the Process.” Every athlete not only envisions the win, but they also have a training process that empowers them to be the best. Any athlete of excellence adds to their “inspiration” to be the best, the “perspiration” of training that empowers their excellence. Here in Hebrews 11, we are given this basic definition of faith: Faith is the foundation of everything we hope to receive from God, giving us conviction of realities that we cannot see. (Hebrews 11:1 (JOT)) Yet, how do we attain this faith that gives us an enduring hope, and a conviction which impacts our life and the lives of those around us? Hebrews 11:4-7, gives us a great clue to the process of vital faith: pleasing God. As you read Hebrews 11:4-7, how do Abel, Enoch and Noah manage by their faith to please the living God? Hebrews 4:4-7: By faith Abel brought God a better offering than Cain did. By faith he was commended as righteous, when God spoke well of his offerings. And by faith Abel still speaks, even though he is dead. By faith Enoch was taken from this life, so that he did not experience death: "He could not be found, because God had taken him away." For before he was taken, he was commended as one who pleased God. And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him. By faith Noah, when warned about things not yet seen, in holy fear built an ark to save his family. By his faith he condemned the world and became heir of the righteousness that is in keeping with faith. (NIV)
