(Hebrews 12:1 NIV) Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us,
√ Why Abraham? The FATHER of our FAITH!
(Romans 4: 16 NASV) For this reason it is by faith, that it might be in accordance with grace, in order that the promise may be certain to all the descendants, not only to those who are of the Law, but also to those who are of the faith of Abraham, who is the father of us all
(Genesis 15: 6 NASV) Then he believed in the LORD; and He reckoned it to him as righteousness.
√ FAITH; this is how we live with and without it, it is impossible to please God.
(Romans 1:17 NASV) … as it is written, the righteous man shall live by faith.
(Hebrews 11:6 NASV) And without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who seek Him.
√ Real faith is quick to OBEY, even when we don’t fully understand.
(Genesis 12:1,4 NASV) Now the Lord said to Abram,”Go forth from your country…” & So Abram went forth…..
√ PATIENCE is an essential key in receiving from God.
(Hebrews 10: 35-36 NASV) Therefore, do not throw away your confidence, which has a great reward. For you have need of endurance (patience), so that when you have done the will of God, you may receive what was promised.
√ FAITHFUL is He who promised.
(Hebrews 11: 11 NASV) By faith even Sarah herself received ability to conceive, even beyond the proper time of life, since she considered Him faithful who had promised;
(Galatians 3: 9 NASV) So then those who are of faith are blessed with Abraham, the believer.
