THE POWER OF ADVENTURESOME BELIEVItNG
GENESIS 12: 1-5
EVERYONE KNOWS THE NAME ABRAHAM. WHAT MADE HIM GREAT?
WELL, TURN IN YOUR BIBLES TO GENESIS 12. LET'S READ VERSES
ONE THROUGH FIVE AND WE'LL BEGIN TO UNDERSTAND WHY HE IS
CALLED THE "FATHER OF FAITH" ...
"NOW THE LORD SAID TO ABRAM,

AS IN A FOREIGN LAND, DWELLING IN TENTS WITH ISAAC AND JACOB,
FELLOW HEIRS OF THE SAME PROMISE;
FOR HE WAS LOOKING FOR THE CITY WHICH HAS FOUNDATIONS,
WHOSE ARCHITECT AND BUILDER IS GOD.
BY FAITH EVEN SARAH HERSELF RECEIVED ABILITY TO CONCEIVE,
EVEN BEYOND THE PROPER TIME OF LIFE, SINCE SHE CONSIDERED HIM
FAITHFUL WHO HAD PROMISED;
