Actual examples show that faith is for all time, not just Bible times. The examples are from my life which is just one glimmer from a vast array of believers with different experiences.

The book of Hebrews 12:1-2 puts it this way -  1 Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.

    2 Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

.  An example can and hopefully does inspire us to follow Jesus with all our hearts. We are not obliged to make examples rules for our lives.  We run the race set before us, not the race set before others.
