Great Teaching on Hebrews 11-12
I went to Overlake Christian Church on Sunday and had the opportunity to hear a great teaching. Joel Madson was there representing Global Training Network. Joel has been a pastor for 20+ years and and brings to the table a boat load of experience and an amazing heart.
The text for the teaching was The Hall of Fame of Faith (Hebrews 11-12)
Joel’s emphasis was great, looking at the the historical characters of the Bible and the amazing commissions and purpose filled lives that were given to them by God. Joel then turned the tables on us and asked us to examine our own lives for 2006.
Have we been satisfied with our walk or do we desire more in 2007?
Are we willing to live like these men and women of faith with the potential that God might ask us;
- To do something that the world might see as foolish
- To give up some thing that might not even be wrong (it might just be God’s second best for us)
- To go somewhere that might not be comfortable to us – or seem to make sense
- To trust God to do the seemingly impossible in our lives
He closed with a great challenge: to get in the game to make a real commitment to the focus of Christ calling and purpose.
Lastly, the only way we can really get in the game is to have a holy desperation for God and His calling in our lives. To come to God in recognition of our frailness and the need for His intervention in our lives.
