People of Faith

Chapter 11 of the book of Hebrews lists many people who had great faith. These people trusted God, and God blessed them. We can read about these people and try to be like them. These people lived a long time ago. But their lives can encourage us to live for God today. Verse 1a of our Bible Reading says, “We have those many people of faith around us. Their lives tell us what faith means. So we should be like them.”
Sometimes I wonder what people will say about me after I die. Will people say good things or bad things about me? Will other people look at my life and want to become a Christian?
Think about your life. When you die, will people say that you were an honest person? Most importantly, will people remember that you followed Jesus?
We should try to be like the people in Hebrews 11. We should trust God to lead us. And we should share our faith with our family and friends. Then we will be people of faith, too.
