Abraham believed God. March 23
What does Scripture say? “Abraham believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness.” Romans 4:3
Abraham’s greatest quality was that he believed God or in other words he had faith in God and His promises. We should be obedient, pray, study Gods word, labor for the Lord. But having faith in God and His promises is the greatest quality we can have. If we have faith in Him then the other things will surely follow. Abraham didn’t always understand everything and he sure had some long test and trial. Yet He never quit believing in God and what He had promised him. He didn’t even have the scriptures like we have today. But he kept following God and His promises. How much more we have today, Gods word at our side, the promise of His Son, who forgives us and helps us and the Holy Spirit to guide us. We have the promise of an eternal home and peace in this paradise that awaits us. Let’s keep our faith and trust in God and the Lord Jesus. Then surely, along with Abraham, it will be credited to our account that we are the righteous people of God.
