Ultimate Faith: Ordinary People Extraordinary Faith

Hebrews 11                                                              January 8, 2017

Pastor Todd Harker

Scripture Emphasis:

Heb 12:1-2 “Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us. Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith”

 

There are not any more ordinary people in the world than the people God introduces us to in Scripture.   Each one has a unique story to tell of faith and courage.  From the young mother of Jesus to the dedicated boat builder, their stories have encouraged generations of faithful believers.  Today we look to be encouraged also by looking at the ULTIMATE FAITH passage.
