Heroes

Like silent shadows, the heroes of the faith pass beside us, pointing us toward the upward way, whispering words of courage.

The memory of all those models of righteousness now gone from view puts needed steel in our spirit, prompting us to press forward, always forward.

The legacy of their powerful presence and penetrating pages adds depth to our otherwise superficial existence.

Because their convictions live on in words that challenge today's shallow thinking, we do not—we dare not—remain the same.

I would challenge you to do some further reading about these heroes of the faith. Their lives and their words are there for our edification.

"But as it is, they desire a better country, that is, a heavenly one. Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God; for He has prepared a city for them" (Heb. 11:16).

Daniel chapter 7 offers an overview of God’s grand design for humanity—all of which was future to Daniel, some but not all of which is history to us. This free MP3 presents a collage of prophecy, where we’ll see the sovereignty of God that we can trust in.
