"Faith" Booster Shot Two

As I talked about yesterday, I often skim through Hebrews 11 and don't look in detail at all the examples of faith we have. I decided, as many of us seek to follow God, that I needed to break it a part and focus on the reality of each individual act of faith.

"By faith Abel offered God a better sacrifice than Cain did. By faith he was commended as a righteous man, when God spoke well of his offerings. And by faith he still speaks, even though he is dead." Hebrew 11:4

*You can find the story of Abel in Genesis 4.

I'm sure that Abel didn't give a better sacrifice planning to die. Though sometimes, as we step out in faith, the world living in sin retaliates.

Yet we know, through faith and love of God, Abel gave his best. We know that death is not the end and just as the verse says, "by faith he still speaks".

In the joy of following our Heavenly Father, we sometimes choose to proceed with a whisper, a verse, or a downright shove...no matter how we follow Him, the momentum that follows is like nothing we've ever experienced before.

Join the momentum...it is a beautiful place to be. It's not always easy, but then the best things never are.
