Speaker: Lukus Counterman - 1 Peter 5:5 says, y"God opposes the proud, but gives grace to the humble." In the account Naaman and Elisha in 2 Kings 5, we see this truth come to bear. Naaman, the pagan lager came to realize that he could not buy God's salvation, demand it by his own power, or merit it by reputation and achievements. Nothing he have (like gold and silver) and nothing he had done (like great military victories) could impress God or put him in his debt. God's salvation is offered by grace alone. His gift costs us nothing..except our pride. So, if we want God's healing, then we need humility. If we want God's salvation, then we must submit to his word. May the Lord help us to consider our need for God's grace today.

Speaker: Will Galkin - For the next three weeks we would like to highlight three words that describe this assembly. They are Gospel, Grace, and Church. This morning we will be looking at the Gospel. The Gospel can be defined as Good News. Biblically, we know that all of mankind has broken God’s law and deserves His Just Judgment. Yet, the Good News is that Jesus Christ the eternal Son of God came to this World to take that judgment and be our Savior. Jesus Christ lived perfectly and fulfilled all righteousness. Yet, He died for sinners on the cross was buried and rose again from the dead. Through Jesus Christ’s sacrifice mankind is now able to enter in to a relationship with God. Though Christ we are able to have a life of faith.

Speaker: Lukus Counterman - Ambrose, Bishop of Milan wrote to the church of Vercellae in the 4th century AD and referred to Hebrews 11 regarding faith that escapes and endures suffering. He said, "They were found most strong when thought to be most weak, and they did not shrink from the mocking's of men because they looked for heavenly rewards; they, on whom the beauty of eternal light was shining, did not dread the darkness of dungeon. Fed to the full by fasting, they did not seek to be diverted by pleasure; refreshed by the hope of eternal grace, the burning heat of summer did not parch them, nor did the cold of icy regions break their spirit; for the warm breath of devotion invigorated them; they did not fear the bonds of men, for Jesus had set them free; they did not desire to be rescued from death for they looked forward to being raised to life by Christ." May we look to Jesus and live our such faith in our day.

Speaker: Lukus Counterman - In our text this morning we see another dimension of faith. Whether it's the Israelites trapped between the Red Sea and the Egyptian army, or a woman named Rahab huddled in a little house, we learn that faith delivers. When things appear to be utterly futile or when God calls for unusual methods, we need to be people who trust him. Psalm 20:7 says, "Some trust in the chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the Lord our God." At the end of the day we need to ask ourselves what we are depending on for deliverance. Will money, science, ingenuity, diligence, invention, or strength come through for us? The writer of Hebrews says, "No. Deliverance comes to those who place their faith in God." That was true 2000 years ago, and its true today. May the Lord help us to be people who live by faith.

Speaker: Jotham Manoranjan - Today we look at the example of faith from the life of Moses. Moses' story of faith begins with his parent's choice to disobey pharaoh and save their baby boy. Their choice sets in motion and extraordinary sequence of events that lead to Moses redeeming the people of Israel. Today's we will spend time studying the choices that these men and women of faith made. We will learn from their example of obedience despite the great cost involved. We also look at the endurance of faith and the saving grace of faith. It is amazing how events that played out over 4000 years ago convict our culture and age today.

Speaker: Jared Mitchell - The same Good Shepherd who leads us beside still waters to restore our soul also allows us to traverse the Valley of the Shadow of Death. It has always been this way with God's people since the fall of mankind. While the consequences of our fallenness still remain in this life, for the believer, the trails that God allows or sends our way are not for the purpose of punishment. What does David say? In the midst of the Valley, "you are with me. Your rod and your staff, they comfort me." Our trials are God's invitation. He calls us to trust him in the midst of confusing and troubling circumstances in order to gain what we ultimately need and want the most: Himself.

Speaker: Lukus Counterman - Here in our text this morning, the author of Hebrews shows us how the Patriarchs rested in complete dependence on the pledges made by God. Maybe we could introduce the character of people of faith this morning this way - they are those who LEANs into God's promises. They flop themselves upon them, they lean on God's promises right through their last breath. My friends, though we aren't perfect, if you are pursuing a life of faith (which happens to be the characteristic of all true believers), that pleases God and He's not ashamed of us. So as we go this week, let's commit for the first time, or simply afresh to be people of faith who lean on God's promises, live like pilgrims, and look for a homeland.

Speaker: Will Galkin - The book of Hebrews cab be read in about 45 minutes. Throughout the book, the reader encounters the tension of being exhorted to persevere in faith and be encouraged that God will faithfully preserve those that are His. The focus of the Christian's faith must be Jesus Christ. The author of Hebrews reminds the reader that Jesus is better. He is better than the angles, Moses, and the high priestly system. He is the object and finisher of our faith. Hebrews chapter 11 showcases broken snits of old who demonstrate what a life of faith looks like. Last week we walked through the lives of Able, Enoch, and Noah. This week we begin a section that focuses on the Patriarchs specifically Abraham. These examples are given to Christians as a reminder to press on. But we are not of those who shrink back and are destroyed, but of those who have faith and preserve their souls.
