Examples of Faith (Hebrews Ch.11) : Lesson #8 Moses

Examples of Faith (Hebrews Ch. 11)

Lesson #8 Moses (Verse 23-30)

In this lesson we are
going to look at the example of Moses. Our thought for the lesson is “Faith
must be a way of life”.

In this passage of
Hebrews Moses is said to do serval things by or through faith. We will list these
are listed below. In this lesson we will look at how these things show that
faith was a way of life for Moses.

1)  Refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s
Daughter (verse 24)

2)  Forssook Egypt (verse 26)

3)  Kept the Passover (verse 28)

4)  Passed through the Red Sea (verse 29)

What is the spiritual
application for us from this example?

1)  It takes faith to separate (2
Corinthians 6:17 – 7:1
)

  • When Moses refused to be called the son of
    Pharaoh’s Daughter he made a choice, when we choose salvation we are making a
    similar choice we are refusing to be children of the devil.
  • This choice led Moses to suffer affliction and our
    choice will can cause us the same thing (2 Timothy 3:12). This is
    where faith must govern our lives.

2)  Faith is what gets us through our separation (Colossians
3:1-3
)

  • Moses endured as seeing him who was invisible. Separation
    is hard but faith is what will get us through, but we must look upward.

3)  By faith he practiced what he preached (1
Timothy 4:12
)

  • When Moses kept the Passover he was practicing
    what he preached, remember that he had children also.
  • We must be a good example and that requires a life
    governed by faith.

4)  Faith will deliver us in the end (1 Peter
1:3-9
).

  • It was not until Moses and Israel crossed the Red
    Sea, and Pharaoh and his army were drowned trying to cross that they were fully
    delivered from Egypt.
  • One day either at the rapture of the Church or
    at death our faith will end in sight, but until then we must let faith govern
    every aspect of our lives.
