Keeping Our Eyes on the One Who Is Invisible ​​ ​​ ​​​​ Hebrews 11:17-28

  • If something is invisible, how can you know it exists? ​​​​ How do you know God exists?

  • Read Hebrews 11:17-19. ​​ What did Abraham do “by faith?”​​ How could he​​ do this knowing that Isaac was the child of promise? ​​ 

  • What if God were to ask you to sacrifice your child​​ – do you think He would? ​​ How would you respond?

  • Read Hebrews 11:20-22. ​​ What did Isaac do “by faith”? ​​ What makes his promising a blessing to his sons an act of faith? ​​ How does​​ Jacob stealing the blessing from Esau fit into all this?

  • How is Jacob’s blessing of Joseph’s sons an act of faith? ​​ How does this relate to​​ Jacob’s own experience from the blessing from Isaac? ​​ Why​​ is this​​ so significant?

  • How is Joseph’s faith demonstrated in saying the people of Israel would leave Egypt? ​​ How had Joseph​​ demonstrated faith in God throughout his life? ​​ What was he looking forward to?

  • Read Hebrews 11:23-26. ​​ How is faith seen in these verses? ​​ How could Moses be thinking about Christ? (vs.26) What would this mean to those reading this letter?

  • Read Hebrews 11:27-28. ​​ Where did Moses keep his eyes? ​​ What difference does this make? ​​ What is the significance of the Passover for us as Christians?​​ 

  • Prayer

    • Ask the Lord to help you keep your​​ eyes on Him and not on the things of this life. ​​ Open your hands to Him as a sign of your​​ surrender.
