Grow us in faith - Abraham
The story of Abraham has stood the test of time as one of the most amazing examples of faithfulness to God in Scripture. Both Paul in the book of Romans and the writer of Hebrews hold Abraham up as an example of faithfulness to God.
There is much we can learn as a church about how to remain faithful to God in our own lives, and also as a church.
As we track through the life of Abraham, and as we retrace his story, we see a God at work in his life who had an incredible plan and a purpose both for him, his family and the nation that was born out of his willingness to trust and obey God. His example speaks powerfully to those who seek to follow God today.
May we grow in faith as we explore the life of Abraham.
