As the Preacher continues to spell out the practicals of the
life of faith he instructs his readers to remember and imitate the
faith of their church leaders. "Remember your leaders, those who
spoke to you the word of God. Consider the outcome of their way of
life, and imitate their faith" (Hebrews 13:7 ESV).
That they are to remember likely indicates these leaders are dead. These leaders may very well have lead them to faith in Jesus. Previously, these folks had been encouraged to imitate the faith of the Old Testament saints listed in chapter 11. In addition they are to remember and imitate the faith of their church leaders. This morning we are going to do just that. Remember with me these spiritual leaders who have lead us and are now with the Lord awaiting the Rapture.
