A Man of Faith

It was by faith that Abraham obeyed when God called him to leave home and go to another land. Hebrews 11:8

I am amazed at so many of the stories and characters in God’s Word. The faith of Abram just blows me away with surprise. I mean he is 75 years old when God calls him away from all these other deities in his homeland. I wonder how he established himself so well in his heart and mind to believe in the one God when all around him was those who practiced faith in many little gods.  But the important thing is that he does. And it’s time for the Story to move through people … a people who will finally come to know redemption. But, I’m getting ahead of myself.

“When God need a man of faith to inhabit His land of promise and become father of a great nation, he found him in Ur of the Chaldeans. In one timeless moment Abram believed God and set out with his family for a land he had never seen, becoming a great example of faith for all generations. ”  Alton Howard.

Abraham

God is now taking a giant step towards his rescue plan for His creation.

The first of many loud messages of the Old Testament … “the righteous will live by their faith” Habakkuk 2:4

This faith that we see lived out in the life of Abraham becomes a model for all who are to come.
