Heroes: Enoch

Heroes: Enoch

Surrounded by increasingly ungodly influences, Enoch held firmly to the true God.  He believed that life does not consist in the things of this world alone, but our citizenship is in heaven and we eagerly await a Savior from there.  In the face of all peer pressure to give up the Lord and live for this world, Enoch instead – by God’s grace – walked with God.  In other words, he lived by faith in his Savior, his greatest treasure. 

Heroes: Abel

Heroes: Abel

Abel was commended as a righteous man.  He believed that that promise seed of the woman would one day come into the world and deliver him from his sins and supply him with the righteousness that only God can give us through his Son, Jesus Christ.  That was the impetus for Abel’s “fat portions” he brought to God.  It was for no other reason than he knew by faith that he was delivered from his sin.
