Perfecting Faith - Hebrews 11:8-12, 17-19
Series: DARING FAITH
We love it when things are perfect. Probably because achieving a state of perfection is so rare. The odds of pitching a perfect game in baseball are 1 in 18K+. In professional bowling the chances of scoring a perfect 300 are 460 to 1. It’s no wonder a perfect game makes headline news.
And when it comes to a life of faith, what are the chances of living a perfect life? Well, unless you’re Jesus Christ, the answer would be zero. Which means every single person who would like to live with perfect faith, won’t. It’s just not going to happen this side of heaven.
But that isn’t a cause for depression or for giving up and deciding to simply “eat, drink, and be merry.” Actually, it can give one the perspective needed for progress in faith. Perfecting faith. The kind we’ll be focusing on this Sunday as we look at the life of faith that Abraham lived.
