Hebrews 11:1 describes faith as “the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.” This series begins with the Heroes Hall of Fame in Hebrews 11 as an introduction to the “pillars of faith” we can all follow – not just those individuals but the markers of faith we can follow as we strive to live with complete trust in God. In Hebrews and in Jesus’ teachings in the Gospel of Luke, we learn how faith empowers us to see the unseen, boldly seek God in the face of opposition, and trust God to accomplish things we can only imagine.
