ʻOhana Sunday: “Faith”

Big Idea: Trusting God allows me to receive what He wants to give me.

Hebrews 11:8-10 (NLT) – It was by faith that Abraham obeyed when God called him to leave home and go to another land that God would give him as his inheritance. He went without knowing where he was going. And even when he reached the land God promised him, he lived there by faith for he was like a foreigner, living in tents. And so did Isaac and Jacob, who inherited the same promise. Abraham was confidently looking forward to a city with eternal foundations, a city designed and built by God.

Thought 1: By faith we UNDERSTAND and OBEY.

Hebrews 11:1 (NLT) – Faith shows the reality of what we hope for; it is the evidence of things we cannot see.

John 3:8 (NLT) – The wind blows wherever it wants. Just as you can hear the wind but can’t tell where it comes from or where it is going, so you can’t explain how people are born of the Spirit.

Thought 2: By faith we PLEASE God

Hebrews 11:6 (NLT) – And it is impossible to please God without faith. Anyone who wants to come to him must believe that God exists and that he rewards those who sincerely seek him.

Thought 3: By faith we are SAVED

Romans 5:6-11 (NLT) – When we were utterly helpless, Christ came at just the right time and died for us sinners. Now, most people would not be willing to die for an upright person, though someone might perhaps be willing to die for a person who is especially good. But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners. And since we have been made right in God’s sight by the blood of Christ, he will certainly save us from God’s condemnation. For since our friendship with God was restored by the death of his Son while we were still his enemies, we will certainly be saved through the life of his Son. So now we can rejoice in our wonderful new relationship with God because our Lord Jesus Christ has made us friends of God.
