The Father of us All

The Apostle Paul called Abraham, "the father of us all."(Romans 4:16) He had that title because he had great faith in and did great things for God. Abraham knew that He kept every promise He had made. We are told, "He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God; and being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform."(Romans 4:20) Do we have that same faith? If you study the life of Abraham, you will see that he was obedient by leaving his home to do God's will. He was unselfish toward Lot. He was courageous, kind, and prayerful, and of course, he had great faith in God. He had all this without the great benefit of being born again. How much more then should we achieve great things for God? There goes another minute. Gone forever. Go share your faith while you still have time.
