Clinging to Hebrews 11, the “faith hall of fame”. I love verse 1, and cannot decide whether verse 13 encourages or terrifies me. I think it’s one of those verses you have to “grow into” as a Christian… praying to get there!
Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.
All these people were still living by faith when they died. They did not receive the things promised; they only saw them and welcomed them from a distance, admitting that they were foreigners and strangers on earth.
