The Choices of Faith (Hebrews 11:23-29)Bob Bonser, September 13, 2020
Part of the Hebrews series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
Looking at what genuine faith looks like. It's NOT trusting a feeling we have about situations and circumstances. Faith DOES trust what we have been told by God as rightly interpreted in His Word.

Hebrews 11:23–29 (Listen)
23 By faith Moses, when he was born, was hidden for three months by his parents, because they saw that the child was beautiful, and they were not afraid of the king’s edict. 24 By faith Moses, when he was grown up, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter, 25 choosing rather to be mistreated with the people of God than to enjoy the fleeting pleasures of sin. 26 He considered the reproach of Christ greater wealth than the treasures of Egypt, for he was looking to the reward. 27 By faith he left Egypt, not being afraid of the anger of the king, for he endured as seeing him who is invisible. 28 By faith he kept the Passover and sprinkled the blood, so that the Destroyer of the firstborn might not touch them.
29 By faith the people crossed the Red Sea as on dry land, but the Egyptians, when they attempted to do the same, were drowned.
