Faith: The Key To The Supernatural (Big Faith In A Big God #1) (Hebrews 11:1-7)Rohan Arudselvam, 06/01/2019
Part of the Big Faith In A Big God series, preached at a Pulpit Series service
"If you have faith as small as a mustard seed..." - these words of Christ suggest that Jesus expects us to move in faith. Rohan Arudselvam kicks off our new series looking at the faith of the earliest patriarchs. As Hebrews outlines these men and their lives, we see one clear common thread - faith. This complete trust in God, which sustained them in the face of trials, remains the key for our lives today.

11:1 Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. 2 For by it the people of old received their commendation. 3 By faith we understand that the universe was created by the word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things that are visible.
4 By faith Abel offered to God a more acceptable sacrifice than Cain, through which he was commended as righteous, God commending him by accepting his gifts. And through his faith, though he died, he still speaks. 5 By faith Enoch was taken up so that he should not see death, and he was not found, because God had taken him. Now before he was taken he was commended as having pleased God. 6 And without faith it is impossible to please him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him. 7 By faith Noah, being warned by God concerning events as yet unseen, in reverent fear constructed an ark for the saving of his household. By this he condemned the world and became an heir of the righteousness that comes by faith. (ESV)
