The Heroes of the Faith
A. W. Pink
The object of the Christian’s hope is an expression of his faith. This is an actual presence in his heart and mind and thinking. One’s faith flows abundantly from one’s beliefs, what one “does not see” but even so, is assured that it is real. This is our future viewed through the eyes of faith. It is the bond between what God says will happen, and what we believe so much that we live out our lives based on those beliefs. Faith is a bond between our heart and soul and what God has promised us.
This reality shows itself in our life, and this is where Pink examines heroes of the faith, and how their faith has actually brought about a present reality from this future outlook.
Pink examines and explains this from Hebrews 11, God’s list of great heroes of the faith. In each of these cases, God uses an individual who has lived his life different because of the promises of God that have so gripped him or her, that they can no longer live “normal” lives, but live a life showing God in that life that they live.
