A Better Country (Hebrews 11:1-3, 13-16, 39-40)
Topic: Sermons Passage: Hebrews 11:1–11:40
We’ve been looking at the book of Hebrews, and every week we’ve been seeing that the book is written to people who are suffering, people who are so beaten down with difficulties and troubles and problems that they’re ready to give up. Every single week, the writer of Hebrews is trying to give them and us – his readers – what they need to handle the brutal realities of life in this world. This week my family experienced these realities —both highs and lows as my son graduated from college on Sunday (the high) and my father was moved into a Nursing Home on Monday (the low). And often that’s how it goes in life, there’s up’s and down’s, high’s and low’s, the easy and the hard, the good and the bad. How do we function as believers in such inconsistent and uncertain times?
This Sunday, we turn to Hebrews 11 (verses 1-3, 13-16, and 39-40) and he gives us something to help us handle these realities of life. If you have it, you can handle anything. If you have it, you can handle absolutely anything life throws at you. What is it? How do we get it? Those are the questions we’ll be looking at this Sunday. Come this Sunday to learn why, when life gets hard, Jesus is Better! See you then! Dr. Dave
