All are Welcome
Many thanks to Pastor Dennis Cariker
for bringing God's word to Heartland this morning.
Dennis spoke on "Faith".
Hebrews 11 (GNT) To have faith is to be sure of the things we hope for,
to be certain of the things we cannot see. 2 It was by their faith that people of ancient times won God's approval.
3 It is by faith that we understand
that the universe was created by God's word,
so that what can be seen was made out of what cannot be seen.
4 It was faith that made Abel offer to God a better sacrifice than Cain's.
Through his faith he won God's approval as a righteous man,
because God himself approved of his gifts.
By means of his faith Abel still speaks, even though he is dead.
5 It was faith that kept Enoch from dying.
Instead, he was taken up to God, and nobody could find him,
because God had taken him up.
The scripture says that before Enoch was taken up,
he had pleased God.
6 No one can please God without faith,
for whoever comes to God
must have faith that God exists and rewards those who seek him.
7 It was faith that made Noah hear God's warnings
about things in the future that he could not see.
He obeyed God and built a boat
in which he and his family were saved.
As a result, the world was condemned,
and Noah received from God the righteousness that comes by faith.
8 It was faith that made Abraham obey when God
called him to go out to a country
which God had promised to give him.
He left his own country without knowing where he was going. 9 By faith he lived as a foreigner
in the country that God had promised him.
He lived in tents, as did Isaac and Jacob,
who received the same promise from God. 10 For Abraham was waiting for the city which God
has designed and built, the city with permanent foundations.
11 It was faith that made Abraham able to become a father,
even though he was too old and Sarah herself could not have children.
He trusted God to keep his promise. 12 Though Abraham was practically dead,
from this one man came as many descendants
as there are stars in the sky,
as many as the numberless grains of sand on the seashore.
