Should we take literally the Old Testament account of God creating the world and Noah’s family surviving a flood? What about people in remote places who’ve never heard the Gospel – how can they be saved? How many people will be in Heaven – a lot or only a tiny percentage of the Earth’s population?
Hebrews 11 answers these questions and so much more – such as the important role of faith and why we have something better today than any Old Testament person experienced.
In this message, I address this important passage and all of these issues, hopping from one to the next at a fun pace. It will prove to be both informative and reassuring as your confidence in God’s grace grows even more.
- What “invisible” truths do you have faith in?
- How does verse 3 speak to the beginning of the universe?
- In what way does verse 6 help us with the question of those in remote parts of the world?
- How does verse 7 affirm the veracity of the Old Testament?
- According to verse 12, how many should we expect in Heaven?
- How did Isaac serve as a “type”?
- The phrase “by faith” appears fifteen times in this chapter. Why do you think faith is so important to God?
- Verses 13 and 39 both say Old Testament people didn’t receive what we have today. What spiritually do you have that is better? Can you think of a few things?
