Father Abraham Had Many Sons

We call Abraham "father" not because he got God's attention by living like a saint, but because God made something out of Abraham when he was a nobody. Isn't that what we've always read in Scripture, God saying to Abraham, "I set you up as father of many peoples"?

Abraham was first named "father" of faith and then became a natural father as well because he dared to trust God to do what only God could do: raise the dead to life with a word and make something out of nothing.

When everything was hopeless, Abraham believed anyway, deciding to live not on the basis of what he saw he couldn't do but on what God said He could and would do.

God Himself said to him, "You're going to have a big family, Abraham!"

Hi Karen,
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. It is pretty cool how God works through those who have faith in Him.
Blessings,
Ken
