Faith and Failure
Bible Text: Genesis 11:27-12:20 | Preacher: Pastor Joe Ricchuiti | Series: Faith and Failure, Genesis
1. Hebrews 11:6 says: “And without faith it is impossible to please God because anyone who comes to Him must believe that He exists and that He rewards those who earnestly seek Him.”
2. Abraham is an important figure to study in regard to the life of faith. He is cited as one of the most prominent “heroes of the faith” in Hebrews chapter 11. In fact, three times in Scripture Abraham is called a “friend of God” (2 Chronicles 20:7; Isaiah 41:8; James 2:23).
3. Dr. Allan Ross says of Abraham in Genesis 12: “The passage points up the faith of Abram, and teaches that faith obeys God. Abram was middle-aged, prosperous, settled and thoroughly pagan. The word of God came to him—though it is not known exactly how—and he responded by faith and obediently left everything to follow God’s plan. That is why he is the epitome of faith in the Bible.”
