Abraham

Genesis 12-25

Why Abraham? Why now? There are two answers to that question. Abraham is the preeminent man of faith. When the writer of Hebrews 11 wanted to explain what the life of faith looks like, he gave more space to Abraham than to anyone else. Jesus spoke of Abraham’s faith, and so did the Apostle Paul. Over and over again the New Testament repeats a simple phrase: “Abraham believed God.”That’s what faith is. It’s believing God and then acting upon that belief. So, I hope that by studying his life, we may all be challenged to believe God, to take him at his Word, and then to step out in faith.

For as by the one man’s disobedience the many were made sinners, so by the one man’s obedience the many will be made righteous. Now the law came in to increase the trespass, but where sin increased, grace abounded all the more, so that, as sin reigned in death, grace also might reign through righteousness leading to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” (Romans 5:19–21, ESV)
