Why are Abel and Enoch highlighted for their faith and how did they please God? Faith is not the things we think we can do to win over God, but a trust in who He is and His great promises.
Can we be heroes of faith too? It seems that the writer of Hebrews wants us to know that faith heroes aren’t super-special people that we could never be. In fact, many of them go unnoticed. Lou continues our series with a verse that begins 'And what more shall I say?' Quite a lot apparently!
As we come to our next two heroes, Gavin looks into the faith shown by Rahab in welcoming in the spies and what that can teach us about providing a welcome to those around us. In the second part of this talk, we look at Joshua's obedience in following God's specific instructions about the walls of Jericho.
