Series on Hebrews 11 - Christ in the faith of Noah
Tomorrow Stefano will continue the shared series on Hebrew 11.
The goal is to see Hebrews 11 as a museum gallery full of portraits, but each one of them is pointing to the end of the gallery: that is Christ!
This Sunday Stefano will preach on Hebrews 11:6-7 - Christ in the faith of Noah!
"And without faith it is impossible to please him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him. By faith Noah, being warned by God concerning events as yet unseen,
in reverent fear constructed an ark for the saving of his household. By this he condemned the world and became
an heir of the righteousness that comes by faith.."
Hebrews 11:1-4 (ESV)
"Noah attended so much to God’s word, that turning away his eyes from the appearance of things at that time, he feared the destruction which God had threatened, as though it was present. Hence the faith which he had in God’s word prepared him to render obedience to God; and of this he afterwards gave a proof by building the ark."
