I would have to think that chapter 11 is the most read chapter in the book of Hebrews. It is often considered the chapter of “Faith Fame.” For me I was captured by the Vision that each of these people saw and they went after it.
Verses 13-16 spells out vision as well as I think you can spell it out “All these people died still believing what God had promised them. They did not receive what was promised, but they saw it all from a distance and welcomed it. They agreed that they were foreigners and nomads here on earth. Obviously people who say such things are looking forward to a country they can call their own. If they had longed for the country they came from, they could have gone back. But they were looking for a better place, a heavenly homeland. That is why God is not ashamed to be called their God, for he has prepared a city for them.”
At KBC we have some great history and have a lot of people who went out on faith to plant a church in this particular part of KV. They were confident that God would do a great work. God has and will continue to do a great work. I believe that as we continue to march forward that God will show each one who asks HIM….what this place will look like in the future. My prayer is that there will be a multitude of people at the CHURCH that will be part of something great.
If Hebrews 11 continued to this day how would KBC be written in….”It was by faith that KBC did …………….” For God had something better in mind for us, so that they would not reach perfection without us. (verse 40)
