I have read Hebrews 11 many times, have part of it memorized. You probably do as well. It is the faith hall of fame. This time through I noticed a thread that you probably have seen but I have not put together. The theme deals with the substance of faith.
First, in verse 3 we believe that the world was not made out of what is visable. Abel gave a better sacrifice but was not given direction to do so. Enoch did not see death and was not seen because God took him up. Noah was warned about things not seen. Abraham left his home not knowing where he was going and was given a child when Sarah was unable to conceive. So we see that faith means we believe in the:
- Not visible
- Not directed
- Not seen
- Not knowing
- Not able
This is not an easy assignment. But there is more. I will circle back to Noah specifically tomorrow.
