Dead Men Do Tell Tales
Topic: Faith Verse: Hebrews 11:4–11:4
Pastor Art Azurdia preaching part two of "The Animation Principle," from Hebrews 11.
This section of Hebrews begins to provide a catalog of men and women from the Old Testament that have exemplified authentic faith. First up, we see in Abel the defining essence of faith as the positive response to God's revealed will and the blessed outcome of faith as the positive affirmation of God Himself. Abel is the first model of a person in possession of the animating principle. A living and active faith produced by grace that expresses itself in obedient perseverance.
