Summary: This is the first of a series of messages encouraging people to pursue the faith demonstrated by those in the Bible.

“Superhero in the Making”

Hebrews 11:1-3 (quickview) 

Faith: Webster says a belief in something for which

there is no proof. The world says no proof,

but the Christian says there is plenty of

proof. There is evidence of His power

experienced personally and witnessed by others

who see the fruits of our faith.

Superheroes in the making must have a faith that is:

I. Sure - (Hebrews 11:1 (quickview) )

A. Contrast a wish vs. a hope

1. Hope - A belief that what we cherish or

desire in our hearts will be fulfilled.

2. To wish is to hope by human standards with no guarantees of fulfillment.

3. To hope is to know by heaven‘s standards there is a guarantee.

B. What I might wish for but have no

gaurantees:

1. My family to be saved

2. The church will be faithful in all

things

3. Peace in the world

C. What I can hope for with assurance of it

becoming a reality:

1. Salvation through faith

2. Heaven with salvation

3. Strength to accomplish His glory

II. Certain - (Hebrews 11:1 (quickview) )

A. Seen vs. Unseen

1. To see and believe is to accept

reality. Example: Thomas (John 20:24-31 (quickview) )

2. To not see and believe - that is FAITH!

example: God‘s elect(1 Peter 1:8-9 (quickview) )

B. The things that I can detect with my

senses are easy to believe.

1. I can see evidence of wealth

2. I can hear musical talent

3. I can smell and taste an ability to cook

C. The things that I can’t see are things I

might must take in faith.

1. Electricity, brain, bobber

2. Creation of the world (vs. 3)

3. Power of God in my life

III. Commended - (Hebrews 11:2 (quickview) )

A. To be commended is to be “praised”

1. Not as much as God is for we are not worthy

2. This praise was more than a pat on the back, a high five, a ‘thatta boy’!

3. A father praises a son

B. Abel was commended by faith (vs. 4)

C. Others commended by faith (Vs. 39)

D. With it comes reward
