The Essence of Faith – Lesson 7

Like many things we think of – whether academics or sports or technology – there are recognized “fathers” – the one who made it real. When it comes to faith the Scripture clearly shows us Abraham as the father of faith. We can see the four promises given by God to Abram in Genesis 12. God told Abram to go and he went. God promised to make him a great nation, to make his name great, to bless him, and to bless all people through him. These promises compelled Abraham to be a willing participant in God’s story. And we see that Abram demonstrated his faith by taking action based on God’s promises. God’s grace gives rise to faith. It’s derived from His initiative in our life. God so love the world… Have you responded to God’s initiative through Jesus Christ’s death, burial, and resurrection? Have you received His resurrected life?
