Pastor Art Azurdia preaching part 11 of "The Animation Principle" from Hebrews 11:23.
It has been said that we fear men so much because we fear God so little. Moses' parents are commended by the writer of Hebrews because they faced disobeying the cruel edict of Pharaoh to preserve Moses' life, knowing he had God's elective favor. Acting on the basis of faith is a reasonable, righteous, and rational reliance on God's immovable and invincible word. God's curricula to grow us is often to strip away all of our self-sufficiency except His promises and then He calls us to remain faithful.
