Our Father Abraham !
We must have a faith like Abraham â€“ believe God raised Jesus from the dead, so that we can be his offspring and inherit the promise!
Genesis 18:17-19 The promise to Abraham confirmed
Believe (pisteuo) = to be persuaded, to be convinced of its truth > to take God at His Word!
1. Abraham believed against hope in Godâ€™s promise, therefore,
he inherited the promise, and righteousness was credited
to him. (verses 18-21)
Credit = to reckon, count it towards oneâ€™s account
2. We must have a believing response to Godâ€™s provision of salvation through His Son, Jesus Christ â€“ â€˜He was delivered over to death for our sins and was raised to Life for our justification.â€™ (verses 23-25)
3. We also inherit the promise as Abrahamâ€™s offspring â€“ we
will be heirs of the world through our victorious Messiah!
(verses 4-5) Romans 5:17 Revelations 5:9-10
