As we turn to the Word of God tonight for our lesson in Scripture, I draw your attention to the eleventh chapter of Hebrews...Hebrews chapter 11. We're going to look at verses 30...verses 23 to 29...29....23 to 29, it's a brief portion of Scripture that sort of encompasses the salient characteristics of faith that are indicated in the life of one very, very well-known Old Testament figure, the man Moses.
Let me read it to you, starting in verse 23.
"By faith, Moses when he was born was hidden for three months by his parents because they saw he was a beautiful child and they were not afraid of the King's edict. By faith, Moses when he had grown up refused to be called the son of Pharaoh's daughter, choosing rather to endure ill treatment with the people of God than to enjoy the passing pleasures of sin considering the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures of Egypt, for he was looking to the reward. By faith, he left Egypt, not fearing the wrath of the King, for he endured as seeing him who is unseen. By faith, he kept the Passover and the sprinkling of the blood so that he who destroyed the firstborn would not touch them. By faith, they passed through the Red Sea as though they were passing through dry land. And the Egyptians when they attempted it were drowned."...
