As we wrap up this month’s series, we look at the life of one more of the “ancients,” whose faith is commended to us in Hebrews 11. Moses was a Jew who grew up in Egypt as the adopted son of the pharaoh’s daughter. He lived in a palace as a prince enjoying a life of wealth and status. But one day, when he remembered who he was, he made the choice to give all of that up, so that by faith he could answer the call of God in his life.

Perhaps one of the most memorable definitions of the word, faith, comes from Hebrews Chapter 11: “Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.” The Hebrew authors then tell us, “This is what the ancients were commended for.” For the month of October, we will spend some time getting to know a few of these “ancients.” We will see just how they lived out their faith in God, and why they were commended for it. May their faith in action be an example to us! This week we will learn that when, by faith, we believe God truly has something better for us (in reality He has what is best), it enables us to leave behind what is comfortable and familiar to chase after the promise He puts before us.

As we continue in the series, “By Faith,” we will spend some time seeking to understand what faith looked like in the lives of a few of those mentioned in the Hebrews 11 list. This week we will spend our time with Noah, who, “when warned about things not yet seen, in holy fear built an ark to save his family.” It seems Noah had no idea what was coming, or at least how to make sense of what God had told him was coming. By Faith, however, he chose to obey even though he did not understand. We will see the impact his example should have on us, as we also choose to live by faith.

Now that we have established that the church needs leadership, and that God desires for
that leadership to come from quality individuals, we will ask one additional question::–what should the relationship between church leaders and those they are leading look like? You may be surprised to find that the New Testament authors had quite a lot to say about that.
