“So Abram departed, as the LORD had spoken unto him; and Lot went with him: and Abram was seventy and five years old when he departed out of Haran. And Abram took Sarai his wife, and Lot his brother’s son, and all their substance that they had gathered, and the souls that they had gotten in Haran; and they went forth to go into the land of Canaan; and into the land of Canaan they came”. Genesis 12:4-5
Much has been attested to the subject of faith and many people claim to have faith. The faith that Abraham had, which is the faith we are to testify to found it source not in man, but in God! The faith “once delivered to the saints”, as spoken of in the book of Jude is a faith that is from God.
Just because you believe something or someone does not mean that your faith is credited to you as righteousness. The faith that God credits as righteousness is believing in His own word. When a person hears what God has to say on a subject and believes it; that is faith.
Abraham heard God and acted in a manner that was consistent with what God said. Have you heard God’s Word? Have you heard the Gospel? If you have not, you need to do this before you can have the faith God credits as righteousness.
Today, there are countless variations to the Gospel, but there is only one Gospel. There is only one Truth, One way and One life. This is Jesus Christ. Take a look at the Gospel of Jesus Christ and you will be looking past this life.
Jesus said of Abraham’s faith, “…Abraham rejoiced to see my day: and he saw it, and was glad.” John 8:56
