In a way, we're all looking for future blessing and we'll try to achieve it in all sorts of ways. What do the accounts of Isaac and Jacob's blessings to the next generation tell us about the blessing we're searching for?

What does it mean to look forward to our hope and future as followers of Jesus? Ben finishes our Heroes series by showing us how the faith of the Hebrews 11 heroes leads us to confidence in God for a glorious future with him!
We can sometimes think that if we have enough faith, God will spare us from suffering and persecution. However, Mahvash helps us to see from Hebrews 11 that we're to have faith in the midst of these things. This talk is in Farsi, so if you're looking for an English version, head over to our Youtube channel where you can watch and hear Mahvash with sub-titles!
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. What would it look like if we showed the same obedience in our day-to-day lives?
