The Faith of Abraham
Examples of great faith are all around us and throughout the Bible. We look at role models in the church and we see saints in the Bible. Examples are inspiring, but they often leave us feeling insecure about our own efforts in comparison. When Paul points to Abraham and Sarah as examples of those who believed the promises of God, he’s not just saying, “Believe like Abraham and Sarah!” Paul is calling us to something greater: “Believe in the God of Abraham and Sarah!” Believe that He keeps His promises. Believe that He gives life to the dead. Believe that Jesus was delivered up and was raised up. Believe in such a way that you trust Him with your life—and live by faith.
His and yours,
