One of the problems with having heroes of faith is that we tend to forget that they were men and women like us. “They put their pants on one leg at a time” just like we do and because of this, we should remember that when they weren’t building arks, slaying giants, escaping fiery furnaces, or conquering cities they had a regular life.
If someone were to write a biography about your life, would they be able to say that you lived by faith? If you think only in terms of “BIG” things then probably not but if you think in terms of “simple obedience in faith” to what God says in His word, then the answer is absolutely!
Today’s lesson sets the stage for next weeks lesson where we will try to apply the lessons of Hebrews 11 to ourselves but it is important to take time to note….even ordinary people can be people who live by faith.
