“Today we are hearing much about faith. It is important. I raise the question, “Is faith enough?” To answer that, I will examine the faith of a number of people named in the Bible’s “Hall of Fame,” given in Hebrews 11.” – Dr. J. Otis Yoder
What can Hebrews 11 teach us about faith? More than just a who’s who of the Old Testament, this passage illustrates what faith can do. Throughout this book, Dr. J. Otis Yoder challenges us: Is our faith God-centric like Abraham’s? Can it weather extreme turbulence like Jacob’s faith? Does our faith change us like Rahab’s faith? Is faith enough?
What is usually missing? Works. If it’s an action verb, it’s a work. Dr. Yoder will tell you, “Faith moves muscles.” Faith acts. Faith works. Are you acting in faith?
Their stories are as relatable as they are memorable. I encourage you, whether you’re fighting a battle, writing a sermon, or both, to take a look at this Hebrews 11 and see what you can learn from these individuals. Lord, increase our faith. 1
