The "Tomb of the Unknown Soldier" dedicated in 1921, as a powerful symbol of service and sacrifice, mourning and memory. This represents all of our brave men and women who died so that we could enjoy our freedom! I believe Hebrews 11: 32-40 represents the many faithful men, women, and children, made up of all races and nationalities. I believe we are given these verses as a powerful reminder that God never forgets our faithfulness to Him! There are so many in history that never were known by the world but were intimate toward God! The world labels them unknown, but God their King recognizes them by name!
1) Read together (Hebrews 11:32
-40) Pause for a moment and thank God for the many faithful Unknowns.
2) Travis shared this point. Nameless isn't worthless, it isn't faithless, it isn't directionless. Think of some examples in scripture of the nameless.
Here are a few to get you started: (2 Kings 4:1) The widow: (2 KIngs 5:3) The servant girl; ( Matthew 15: 21-28) The Mother.
3) Read together (James 2:14
-17). We all feel nameless and unseen at times, how can you make someone feel seen this week! In what way will you "Go and Do" and show your faith?
Prayer Lord, Please help me to put my faith into practice. When you prompt me I will obey. Please help me remember daily to ask you to lead me to those who feel unseen. In Jesus name, Amen.
