“God, You have heard my vows; You have given a heritage to those who fear Your name.”
‭‭Psalms‬ ‭61:5‬ ‭HCSB‬‬

Do you come from a family of Christians living out their faith? If yes, hallelujah! What a gift! If, like many of us, this does not describe your background be encouraged in this:  our Heavenly Father has already provided you with a godly Christian heritage!

Hebrews 11 tells us:
Vs 4 “By faith Abel…”
Vs 5 “By faith Enoch…”
Vs 7 “By faith Noah…”
Vs 8 “By faith Abraham…”
Vs 11 “By faith Sarah…”
Vs 20 “By faith Isaac…”
Vs 21 “By faith Jacob…”
Vs22 “By faith Joseph…”
Vs 23 “By faith Moses…”
Vs 29 “By faith [the Israelites]…”
Vs 31 By faith Rahab…”

Vs 32-38 tells of more amazing feats by men and women of faith who left behind their pasts to seek what is better ahead.

“Therefore, since we also have such a large cloud of witnesses surrounding us, let us lay aside every weight and the sin that so easily ensnares us. Let us run with endurance the race that lies before us, keeping our eyes on Jesus, the source and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that lay before Him endured a cross and despised the shame and has sat down at the right hand of God’s throne.”
‭‭Hebrews‬ ‭12:1-2‬ ‭HCSB
