We read about them in Hebrews chapter eleven. Heroes of the Faith. What if they showed up at church Sunday?
Can you imagine standing beside Abraham in a worship service? Sitting next to Noah while the preacher preaches? Standing in the prayer line beside Elijah?
How would that effect your faith? How would it change your expectations for that service?
I met a few Heroes of the Faith at church last night. You probably haven’t heard about any of these. I know you didn’t see their names in Hebrews eleven.
The crowd was down. Summer has begun and lots of families are taking advantage of it. As I scanned the group gathered for our weekly adult Bible class, I saw more empty seats than live bodies.
Once I got past the disappointment of having half of the class absent, I looked closely at who was there.
