Hebrews 13:2 Would You Recognize Him? (McLarty)

A little girl in Sunday school drew a picture. The teacher asked, "What are you drawing, Mary?" "A picture of Jesus," she said. The teacher said, "Mary, we didn't have cameras back then and, as far as we know, no one ever painted Jesus' picture, so we really don't know what he looked like." Mary said, "You will when I finish."

Hebrews 12:1-2, 12-17 Watched Over! (Donovan)

My friends in Colorado Springs moved to California. A year later they were divorced. She says, "In Colorado, we had deep roots in the church. When we moved, we didn't establish those roots. It was then that our marriage started coming apart." "Surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses," they were strong! By themselves, they were weak!

Hebrews 12:1-2 A Gallery of Saints (McLarty)

This morning, I'd like to share a few pictures from my gallery of saints. None would've thought of him/herself as a saint, and would be quick to tell you that. Because I've lived in a number of places, I've known saints, far and wide. But for the purposes of this sermon, I chose a few who lived here in Hope. You probably knew them.

Hebrews 11:8-10 Learning to Live as a Transient (Bowen)

Tony Campolo tells about a study in which fifty people over the age of 95 were asked one question: "If you could live your life over again, what would you do differently?" Three answers constantly re-emerged and dominated the results. 1. I would reflect more. 2. I would risk more. 3. I would do more things that would live on after I am gone.

Hebrews 11:1-3, 8-16 Seeing Beyond the Horizon! (Donovan)

Some people scoff at Christians because we live by faith—because we believe that which we cannot yet see. They have at our "pie-in-the-sky" outlook. They say, "You only go around once. Can't you see that! Grab all the gusto you can get!" And we reply, "No! We don't just go around once! There is something more, and we have seen it!"
