The Journey of Faith (A Study in the Life of Abraham)

Biblical faith is not a blind leap in the dark; it’s an affirmative response to what God has graciously revealed. Nor is faith a one-time event in the life of the believer; it’s an on-going relationship with the God who is ever deepening our trust in him, even through the many heartaches and heartbreaks of life. No one exemplifies the life of faith better than Abraham. He is descried in Scripture as “the man of faith” (Galatians 3:9), and “the father of all who believe,” even if they’re not ethnically Jewish (Romans 4:11). Best of all, Abraham is called, “God’s friend” (James 2:23). God asks of us nothing more than he asked of Abraham—that we would take him at his word and act on that word. The greatest adventure you’ll ever know begins when you say “Yes!” to God’s call on your life. You, too, can be God’s friend!
