Why You Shouldn’t Give Up on Your Faith
The Bible presents us with a list of people who faced unbelief but lived by faith in the promises of God. We find a catalogue of these people in Hebrews 11, often referred to as the OT heroes of the faith. But far from just being a list of people where we might say, “These folks were strong, be like them,” it’s a list that draws us into their company by showing us what they trusted and how they persevered when faith was hard. These are our people, and their experience assures us that we can trust God fully just as they did. Therefore, let’s look at vv. 1–16 which show us why you shouldn’t give up on your faith.
