In the Footsteps of Faith
Lessons from the Lives of Great Men and Women of the Bible
“Remember those who led you, who spoke the word of God to you; and considering the result of their conduct, imitate their faith.”
“In everything give thanks.” “Love the Lord your God with all your heart.” “Be holy, because I am holy.” Whether you have recently come to faith in Christ or have known Him for many years, these standards for Christian living found in God’s Word can seem overwhelming – even impossible. That’s why God not only gave us principles to live by, but also provided us with examples to follow. When you see someone who has chosen a life of faith and known its victory, you realize that godly living is more than possible – it’s a reality.
From one of Christianity’s most respected pastors and teachers, In the Footsteps of Faith examines the lives of faithful men and women such as Noah, Rahab, Jonah, Peter, and Lydia, as well as our Lord Jesus Christ Himself. Their godliness reassures you of what principles and precepts alone can’t: that faithful living is possible because someone else has already attained the standard. They also challenge you to be a person whose walk with the Savior is worth imitating.
So discover the possibility of living obediently. See faith in action and begin to pattern yourself after those who have left us their example. Then watch God work in you so that others can follow in the footsteps of your faith.
