There is a place in the Bible where we find a list of people who are honored for their extraordinary faith. Many call this the “hall of faith.”
Hebrews 11:1-2 states, “Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. This is what the ancients were commended for.” Then the writer expands on who those people are and what specific acts of faith they are commended for.
This reminds me that we as Christians should have our own list of people who we revere as those with extraordinary faith. These are people we have looked up to as examples of the faith we ought to possess.
These are people who have encouraged us to move forward in our faith and to see that the impossible can become the possible.
It also reminds me that we need to strive to become part of someone else’s “hall of faith.” When our children or grandchildren watch us, what do they think about our faith? When those we work with or go to school with see our life in action, do they perceive that we are walking by faith?
Every day we ought to ask the Lord to help us to trust him more and to elevate ourselves to start believing for the impossible so that we can be on someone’s list.
