Three hundred years after the flood, people were misbehaving again and forgot God. But God found a brave young man who believed in Him, loved Him, and talked to Him every day. His name was Abram.
Abram lived in a city called Ur of the Chaldeans. One day, God asked him to go from there to a land that he was going to show him.
What do you think Abram did? He did not think about it twice because he recognized the voice of the One who was asking him. Since Abram spoke to God every day, he did not hesitate to obey. Because of his obedience and for all the times he trusted God throughout his life, He‘s said to be “the father of faith.”
Another day, God told him that he was going to be called Abraham, which in Hebrew means “father of multitudes.» God promised that he would have many descendants.
Do you think God kept his promise? Of course, He did. God gave him two sons, Ishmael and Isaac, who were the parents of two great nations: the Arabs and the Jews.
In addition, Christians also consider Abraham to be the «father of faith,» because Christianity arose from the lews, right*
Therefore, Abraham is considered ”father of the faith”by Arabians, Jews, and Christians.
Do you have faith in God? Well, then you’re also a descendant of Abraham.
Ask Jesus, in your Prayer Journal, to help you trust Him as much as the father of faith did.
