On November 13, Pastor Jack asked, “Is the life of faith worth it, especially if we aren’t seeing the outcomes we hope for?” The answer is a resounding YES! Hebrews 11:35b-40 calls us to live lives of faith no matter the outcome, like the believers of old who endured persecution with their hope fixed on their heavenly home.
