Hebrews chapter 11

Hebrews 11

Recap: In Hebrews chapter 9 & 10 we studied about the new covenant and the reason why it is so much better than the old Covenant. We saw how the animal sacrifices was never enough and could never take away the sins of the people. Jesus Blood and his body is the only means by which we could be cleansed and forgiven for our sins. Jesus does not have to be sacrificed over and over but he made atonement for us once and for all. Since we have this greater covenant now it is far more important that we take heed and accept this new covenant and not trample over the sacrifice that was made for unless we be subject to a greater condemnation than what the old covenant gave. There is no greater covenant or no blood more precious than that of Jesus Christ.

1. What is Faith? How do the believer exercise Faith in his/her life?

Hebrews 11:1

2. Now Faith is the substance of Things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen,

a. Substance-substructure, foundation, That which has foundation, is firm

b. Hope -Expectancy with full confidence and joy


  • our substance is our belief in Jesus Christ rising from the dead, and we patiently wait with full assurance expecting him to return to receive us into his everlasting kingdom. while we wait we offer our lives to him as a living sacrifice that we may be found holy and without blemish.

Hebrews 11:2

3. The only way to receive a good report with God is through Faith. Even though under the old covenant they had the law it still required Faith for them to be pleasing to God.

  • Gods word is of assurance and it whatever he speaks must be accomplished Isaiah 55:11

  • The magnitude by which we are willing to sacrifice to God shows the faith that we have towards God.

a. Faith without works is dead. The works that a person do, is evidence of their faith towards God.

  • James 2:14-26

  • Ephesians 2:8-9

b. Having faith is not easy and is life long when serving God. Faith requires great patience and great sacrifice.

Hebrews 11:3 For example we understand that by faith that the worlds were framed. God did not create all of the world in one day but six days and rested on the seventh.

  • Moses waited 40 years in the wilderness before he heard from God, then he wondered 40 years in the wilderness to get to the promise land.

  • Stephen when he preached in the temple he was stoned to death for the testimony of Jesus Christ

3. Faith pleases God, but faith is not to be confused as tool to get God to do whatever you want him to do. We are to have faith even when God says no. The bases of our faith should be, even if God does not answer a prayer we know that he can.

  • Daniel 3:17-18

  • 1 Samuel 4:4-11

  • 1 john 5:14-15

  • Deuteronomy 34:1-5

4. The Hall of Fame of Faith Read Hebrews 11:4-39

Verse 39 By faith all of these have received a good report but yet not the total promise because God has provided some better thing for us. Even salvation through Jesus Christ.
