Ray Stedman - June 13, 1965
What Faith Is
Scripture References: Hebrews 11:1-7
From Series: "Studies in Hebrews"
This earlier series on Hebrews by Ray Stedman contained startling and new insights when preached in 1965 were later put into paperback book form. His later series, below is an entirely different series---both are outstanding. "Hebrews is all about Christ. The introduction declares that Christ is God's final word to man. There is nothing more to be said, there is nothing that can be added after what Jesus Christ has said and done. And it is utterly foolish to ignore it, the writer says, because we cannot exist without Christ. It is basic dishonesty to pretend we can. We are not independent of God, as we sometimes foolishly imagine. We are not even independent of each other. We need one another and we need God, desperately, every moment of life. Therefore, if Christ be God, as this letter so dearly claims, he is the inevitable One, and it is foolish to ignore him."
