Abraham, a man God made promises to…

Abraham, The Man of Faith!

Abraham and us?

So also Abraham ‘believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness.’ Understand, then, that those who have faith are children of Abraham. Scripture foresaw that God would justify the Gentiles by faith, and announced the gospel in advance to Abraham: ‘All nations will be blessed through you.’ So those who rely on faith are blessed along with Abraham, the man of faith.  Galatians 3:6-9 (NIV)
