Most of us realize that Hebrews 11 is often referred to as the recognition of the “heroes of faith” with a listing of men who responded to God. The list incudes Noah, Abraham, Moses Isaac, Jacob, etc. But as I read today a passage caught my eye that I had not fully considered.
Hebrews 11:3 By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God’s command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible.
Do you see the implication? God did not just turn one form of matter into another (like a seed growing into a plant.) No, as Genesis states “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” From out of nothingness the Lord created!
