Sunday Morning Sermon: Abraham’s Faith | Romans 4:17-25 | Steve Wainright
No unbelief made him waver concerning the promise of God, but he grew strong in his faith as he gave glory to God, fully convinced that God was able to do what He had promised. That is why his faith was “counted to him as righteousness.” But the words “it was counted to him” were not written for his sake alone, but for ours also. It will be counted to us who believe in Him who raised from the dead Jesus our Lord, who was delivered up for our trespasses and raised for our justification. –Romans 4:20-25
Abraham was not justified by his works. He was made right with God through faith in His promise. We need that same faith as Abraham.
Looking at the objects around us instead of God creates a weak faith. It’s the object of Abraham’s faith that counted. He did not look at the circumstances around him, but at God.
When human impossibility faces the possibility of God breaking His Word, God always fulfills His promise.
