biblestudy: Abraham (Part 5)
John W. Ritenbaugh
Given 13-Feb-90; Sermon #BS-AB05; 73 minutes
Abraham's ironclad faith was developed incrementally as a result of calculating or "adding it all up," matching the promises of God with the current situation, realizing from his ongoing relationship with God, that it was impossible for Him to lie. We learn from Abraham's experience to trust God even when we have incomplete data. When we attempt to take the expedient way out (embracing a carnal or worldly solution), we will run into grave difficulties- forcing us back to the fundamentals of faith. As descendants of Abraham, we must learn to trust God, forming an on-going relationship with Him, realizing that God's ways and the world's ways do not mix.
