The Word This Week
Recently, Cooperstown had its annual induction of individuals into the Baseball Hall of Fame. This collection of the "greats" of baseball's past is meant to elevate not only those individuals but the virtues and qualities that the sport itself is meant to foster. Hebrews chapter 11 is often referred to as the "Hall of Faith" and is a list of the "greats" of God's redemptive story. Most often we focus on these individuals and end up neglecting that the list is meant to exalt the virtue of faith as much as the women and men who possessed it. More than that, it is meant to exalt the God in whom that faith is placed. We are called to emulate this faith and so join ourselves to God's redemptive story.
