Romans 4:18-25 FAITH!

Even when there was no reason for hope, Abraham kept hoping–believing that he would become the Father of many nations.

For God had said to him, “that’s how many descendants you will have!” And Abraham’s FAITH did not weaken, even though, at about 100 years of age, he figured his body was as good as dead–and so was Sarah’s womb.

ABRAHAM NEVER WAVERED IN BELIEVING GOD’S PROMISE. IN FACT, HIS FAITH GREW STRONGER, AND IN THIS HE BROUGHT GLORY TO GOD!

He was fully convinced that God is able to do whatever He promises. And because of Abraham’s faith, God counted Him as righteous. And when God counted him as righteous, it wasn’t just for Abraham’s benefit. It was recorded for our benefit, too, assuring us that God will also count us as righteous if we believe in Him, the one who raised Jesus our Lord from the dead. He was handed over to die because of our sins, and He was raised to life to make us right with God!
