Faith’s Supreme Test

We returned this morning to our series entitled “Strolling Through the Hall of Faith,” a verse by verse study of Hebrews 11. We are looking at the third message on our fourth character, Abraham. We saw that Abraham believed God when he didn’t know where (vv.8-10). Genesis 12:1 Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country (He was to leave his residence), and from thy kindred (his relatives), and from thy father’s house (and his resources), unto a land that I will shew thee. He was to follow God’s leading into a promised land that he had never seen. He believed God when he didn’t know how. (vv.11-16) Abraham and Sara, in their twilight years were promised that they would be parents. Abraham regarded himself as “good as dead,” and even laughed when God told him the news, but at 99 years of age Abraham became a father. This morning we saw how Abraham believed God when he didn’t know why? (vv.17-19) God puts Abraham to the test. It has been said that a faith that cannot be tested, cannot be trusted. God administered to Abraham “Faith’s Supreme Test,” which Abraham passed with flying colors. You can listen to this message by following this link or visit our sermons page.
