Faith Hall of Fame based on Hebrews 11. The Hall of Fame is similar to that of what you would see at a Basketball Hall of Fame or a Baseball Hall of Fame.
Faith Hall of Fame
Verse one of Chapter 11 tells us what faith is …
Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.Hebrews 11:1
But this one is geared for those of faith. I like what Pastor Allen Bonnell of Immanuel Baptist Church of Corbin, KY stated, the first part of Hebrews 11, states … we. (Sermon on April 26, 2015). I never noticed that part, until I heard that sermon. I knew about the others listed.
He also gives two thoughts. The first one is Jesus is greater than all of our fears. This was five years ago, and how true that is today in 2020.
Paul mentions Jesus is greater at least four times. Uses the word better or greater. (Hebrews 11:16 – Home in Heaven; Hebrews 11:26 – Better Possessions; Hebrews 11:35 – Resurrection; and Hebrews 11:40 – Plan).
The other is We do the absurd because Jesus is greater.
That is us, you and I. The one part of the Faith Hall of Fame that is never mentioned or preached. We are part of that Hall of Fame, just by having faith in Christ.
Some Bible’s will headline this as The Triumphs of Faith.
We (You and I)
By faith we understand that the worlds were prepared by the word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things which are visible.Hebrews 11:3
- We (You and I)
- Rahab the harlot
- & Others (No names given)
Rahab is the only one listed that had a title to her name. The title of harlot, also known as a prostitute. That prostitute is in the lineage that goes to Jesus!
A lot of them were tortured, jailed, sawed in two, beheaded, killed, and more. No matter the cost! Being a Christian isn’t always easy.
