Beyond Our Own Strength

by Mark T. Hancock · 0 comments

It’s inspiring to look at the “heroes” of our faith and to see the great things they accomplished, bringing glory to God and making (our shared) history.

Hebrews 11, of course, is a great place to go to get the run-down on these folks.

In reviewing the list, what do these heroes have in common?

They acted on something on the leading edge of their faith, just beyond or perhaps way beyond, their own strength.  They stepped out, up, or in to something that in their own strength would have been impossible.  That is where God is glorified.

When we accomplish things for the Kingdom in our own strength we are recognized for our own strength, talent, or ability.  We get the glory.

When we, by faith, accomplish things beyond our own strength, God is glorified.
