In Romans 4:12 the Apostle Paul declares that Abraham was the father, not of his physical offspring alone, but also of those who “walk in the steps of that faith” which Abraham had.
Have you ever noticed that God does not hold the great men of Scripture up to us because of their personal virtues? Invariably their records are marred by failure and sin. But God bids us observe their faith and what their faith gained for them. (Rom. 4:3,9,11,12).
There is a whole chapter on this subject in the Book of Hebrews. Hebrews 11 is properly called “the great faith chapter,” and its heroes “heroes of faith,” for it tells how Abel, Enoch, Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and scores of others “obtained a good report” before God. They all faltered and failed again and again, but Hebrews 11:39 declares that “these all….obtained a good report THROUGH FAITH.”
You will never be found wanting when you believe God and His word.
“For what saith the scripture? Abraham believed God, and it was counted unto to him for righteousness.” (Rom. 4:3)
