Abraham’s Faith

Romans 4:20-22

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 also able to perform.  And therefore it was imputed to him for righteousness.

Genesis 15:6 tells us how Abraham had a personal relationship with God.  “And he believed in the LORD; and he counted it to him for righteousness.”  You and I are saved the same way, and you and I serve the same way.  We must believe God for salvation, and we must believe God for the power and ability to live for Him.
