The Fruit of Faith Before the Flood (Hebrews 11:4-7)
God’s gift of faith can enable you to be an authentic witness for Him in the midst of growing rebellion against God.
– The Example of Abel (Hebrews 11:4, Genesis 4)
– The Example of Enoch (Hebrews 11:5-6, Genesis 5)
– The Example of Noah (Hebrews 11:7, Genesis 6-10)
– What about your example? Our Example?

4 By faith Abel offered to God a more acceptable sacrifice than Cain, through which he was commended as righteous, God commending him by accepting his gifts. And through his faith, though he died, he still speaks. 5 By faith Enoch was taken up so that he should not see death, and he was not found, because God had taken him. Now before he was taken he was commended as having pleased God. 6 And without faith it is impossible to please him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him. 7 By faith Noah, being warned by God concerning events as yet unseen, in reverent fear constructed an ark for the saving of his household. By this he condemned the world and became an heir of the righteousness that comes by faith. (ESV)
