Our Father Abraham !

Our Father Abraham ! Main Point: We must have a faith like Abraham – 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 God’s promise, therefore, he inherited the promise, and righteousness was credited to him. (verses 18-21) Credit = to reckon, count it towards one’s account 2. We must have a believing response to God’s provision of salvation through His Son, Jesus Christ – ‘He was delivered over to death for our sins and was raised to Life for our justification.’ (verses 23-25) 3. We also inherit the promise as Abraham’s offspring – we will be heirs of the world through our victorious Messiah! (verses 4-5) Romans 5:17 Revelations 5:9-10
