Of Whom the World Is Not Worthy. . .

Vasiles Story

Vasile's Story

Hebrews 11 is commonly referred to as the “Hall of Faith.” In that chapter are listed men and women of God who understood that without faith it is impossible to please God and that He is a rewarder of those who seek Him (Heb. 11:6). The phrase “by faith” is repeated 19 times in this chapter to describe the acts of faith that accompanied the inner faith and sincere conviction of people such as Moses, Abraham, and Rahab. However, there are other unnamed saints who endured indescribable horrors such as being sawn in two, living in caves and holes in the ground, and being scourged. Their character is summed up in a short parenthetical in verse 38: “men [and women] of whom the world was not worthy.”

There are still men and women of God today who are suffering for the sake of the gospel. They are teaching and preaching the Word of God at great peril to themselves and their families. Many have lost their lives. Many of these brave believers are Precept Bible Study leaders. Read the story of Vasile here

Be inspired. Be encouraged. But, mostly, PRAY for our brothers and sisters in Christ who are suffering because of their faithfulness to God.
