The Power of the Plus Factor is faith, fortitude and perseverance. This series is based on the 11th chapter of the book of Hebrews and the characters within who all overcame great obstacles. The author starts out by defining faith. Faith is the substance of things—the evidence of things not seen. The author begins his description with the words, “by faith.” That’s something you and I need in our own individual lives—let’s learn how to obtain it together.Rev. Dr. Kip Laxson
Corresponding Scripture: Hebrews 11:8-13 (NKJV)
8 By faith Abraham obeyed when he was called to go out to the place which he would receive as an inheritance. And he went out, not knowing where he was going. 9 By faith he dwelt in the land of promise as in a foreign country, dwelling in tents with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise; 10 for he waited for the city which has foundations, whose builder and maker is God.
11 By faith Sarah herself also received strength to conceive seed, and she bore a child when she was past the age, because she judged Him faithful who had promised. 12 Therefore from one man, and him as good as dead, were born as many as the stars of the sky in multitude—innumerable as the sand which is by the seashore.
13 These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off were assured of them, embraced them and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth.
