by Charles R. Swindoll September 25, 2015 Hebrews 11:16 Like silent shadows, the heroes of the faith pass beside us, pointing us toward the upward way, whispering words of courage. The memory of all those models of righteousness now gone from view puts needed steel in our spirit, prompting us to press forward, always forward. The legacy of their powerful presence and penetrating pages adds depth to our otherwise superficial existence. Because their convictions live on in words that challenge today’s shallow thinking, we do not—we dare not—remain the same. I would challenge you to do some further reading about these heroes of the faith.
