Hall of Faith- Underdogs


Underdogs

Who doesn’t love a good underdog story?




From Rocky Balboa to David and Goliath- everyone loves a feel-good sports movie about a team overcoming adversity and trials to win the trophy or take the title.




Have you read Hebrews 11 yet?




Most people would call it- “The Hall of Faith”

In reading the list of names like Abraham, Moses, Jacob, Rahab, Noah- all classic stories that are the back bone of Biblical narrative.




At first, you might think that these epic stories all came from epic people that had no flaws.





But the exact opposite was true.


God purposely chose these people because of their backstory.




Abraham had problems trusting in God and even lied about his wife being his sister-twice
Noah was a drunk.
Rahab was a prostitute.
Jacob was a schemer and stole the blessing and inheritance from his brother right in front of his father.
Moses was a murderer.
