May 4th -- The Faith of Abraham

"Therefore from one man, and him as good as dead, were born as many as the stars of the sky in multitude—innumerable as the sand which is by the seashore. These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off were assured of them, embraced them and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth." Hebrews 11:12-13

Hey Peeps!
The camping countdown has begun! 
Please check the left column for weekly updates!

Lovely Chichi will host FNF this Friday at 6:30pm.

At 7:30p, our very own Vuyo will lead us in a bible study on another cherished bible hero, Father Abraham and the nature of biblical faith and righteousness.

I heard an awesome sermon once by Mark Finley called "Strange Fires on Church Altars" and he had this to say regarding the subject...

(Based on Hebrews 11:4-24)
By faith, Abel was killed and Enoch lived (verses 4-5).
By faith, Noah stays in the same place for 120 years and Abraham moves at the will of God (7-8).
By faith, Sarah receives a child at 90 years old and Abraham offers up a child (11; 17)
By faith, Joseph goes to Egypt to become a rich man while Moses by faith leaves Egypt and becomes a poor man (22-23).

Can we really say one person's faith was greater? Don't miss the point of Hebrews 11:
Faith has nothing to do with what is happening around you and everything to do with what is happening inside of you.  Remember that when you are tempted to compare your spiritual walk with others'.
Wishing you a wonderful, strong finish to the week!
God bless.
