Worship Preparation for August 11

August 10, 2019

We continue this Sunday our journey through Hebrews and our focus now on Hebrews 11.  Tom Schreiner says that there is only one kind of faith that is found in the Bible that  can be called "saving faith."  Saving faith is shown to be the same kind of faith throughout the Bible and it is focused very fuily and clearly for us in Hebrews 11.  We have already seen in the first seven verses of this chapter that saving faith is birthed in us by the Spirit of God and by it we have an almost inexplicable desire to worship God as He desires to be worshipped, to walk with God in growing intimacy and to do the works that God has prepared for us as His people which are very clearly communicated in His Word.  We will turn this Sunday to Hebrews 11:8-22 where we will learn that what we need is this kind of faith for living, for lasting and for dying.  I shall look forward to seeing you on Sunday with your Bible open ready to gather together under the authority of the Word of God, in the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ, and in the power of the Holy Spirit to bring pleasure through our worship to our great God and King.
