The Commitment of Faith
“And all these, though commended through their faith, did not receive what was promised, since God had provided something better for us, that apart from us they should not be made perfect.”
We are called to courageous commitment to Jesus Christ. Everyone who has trusted Christ as Savior is called into a battle, and at times it is not easy. As a matter of fact, at times it is very difficult, and we face foes that we could not imagine. We face obstacles that are seemingly impossible.
Sometimes we’re called upon, not to be passive, but to be proactive for the cause of Christ. And when we do that, it requires commitment
God uses a Hines 57 variety of people. God uses garden-variety kinds of people, all kinds of people. Some of the people that here in Hebrews chapter 11 were cultured, and others were very common. Some were wealthy; some were not wealthy; some were very poor. Some won great victory; some experienced great defeats.
But God used all of these people in different ways and what brought them together and what put them in God’s Hall of Fame here in Hebrews 11 was their faith and their common commitment. We are inspired by that commitment.
God is not limited by our personalities. God is not limited by our predicaments. God is not limited by our possessions or our lack of possessions. God can do anything through people who are available to Him, because our God is the same.
GOD IS NOT LOOKING FOR PEOPLE WHO JUST HAVE A GREAT ABILITY, HE’S LOOKING FOR AVAILABILITY.
