In 1997 I had the opportunity to visit Dunn’s River Falls in Jamaica while on a mission trip with our youth group. While there one of our students suggested that he could climb up the falls. Some thought it possible, others impossible, I as leader weighed in “Impossible and unwise”. Chris proceeded to enter into the water and began his assent of the falls. Not only was it possible, he made it look easy as it seemed there were unseen handholds waiting to found. Soon the entire group, including their reluctant pastor climbed the falls. What once seemed impossible, became possible as we saw Chris’ example.
The same is true for our lives of faith. We are encouraged and inspired by the saints who have gone before us to live in ways that we once thought impossible. In our new sermons series, “Faith Like That”, we will consider the aspects of faith of Biblical characters and delve into how we can grow and develop faith like that.
