Scripture Emphasis:

Hebrews 11:39 “These were all commended for their faith, yet none of them received what had been promised.”

Following God is as old as time itself.  It is recorded for us throughout the OT.  It brings to life the stories of real people.  It is meant to spur us on to do the same things in the same ways following the same God.  It is meant to encourage us in our lives today.  Like us today, they ALL had a choice to make.  Would they follow Him?  Today, the choice is yours to make.  What will it be???
