“Moses – Faith That Confronts Opposition and Hostility”

Part 1 & 2

Hebrews 11:20-29

 Introduction:

With the transition to the life of Moses and his faith in God, the writer focuses on the way faith confronts opposition and hostility, a subject familiar to his readers. None of the heroes of faith in this illustrious roll is more eminent than Moses, and no other biography is more dramatic. Through Moses we see: Faith That Confronts Hostility and Opposition.

I.  Faith That Realizes God’s Purposes: Heb. 11:20-23

II.  Faith That Impacts Life Choices: Heb. 11:24-26

A.  Faith choices involve our making tremendous sacrifices (v.24)

B.  Faith choices expose us to affliction (v.25)

C.  Faith choices are usually heavenly-minded (vv.25-26)

1.”reproach on account of Christ” (v.25)

2. “joining the people of God” (v.26a)

3.”recompense of reward” (v.26b)

III.  Faith That Promotes God’s Work: Heb. 11:27-29

A.  Faith inspired the Exodus (v.27)

B.  Faith prompted the celebration of the Passover (v.28)

C.  Faith led to a safe passage through the Red Sea (v.29; cf Exodus 14)

1. God sends impossible situations to grow us (14:1-9)

a. They correct us –

b. They deepen us –

c. They provide opportunities for us –

2. Impossible situations should be faced with holy boldness instead of panic (14:10-12)

3. When impossible situations come, we’re to obey God and watch Him work (14:15-18)

CONCLUSION:

The principal lesson of this section focuses on the choices of Moses. It requires faith still to enable one to make the right life-choice; for worldly advantage does not always seem to be on the side of godliness. The question is sometimes asked, “Is it possible to make the best of both worlds?” And from the point of view of God, the answer is – No.
