Rev. Samuel Wirgau, pastor of Immanuel Lutheran Church in Harrold & Trinity Lutheran Church in Iowa Park, Texas, studies Hebrews 11:39-40 on today’s episode: “And all these, though commended through their faith, did not receive what was promised, since God had provided something better for us, that apart from us they should not be made perfect.” Rev. Wirgau talks about who is being talked about in these verses, what it means to be commended by God through faith, and what it means that saints receive or don’t receive the promise of God in this life.
