BIBLE READINGS:

  • Genesis 12:1-­3

  • Romans 4:16­-25


Our culture is confused about “faith”. Is it the great cop-out: the enemy of reason? Is it just a preference: you have this faith, I have that one? Is it a magic bullet: as long as you have faith in yourself, everything will work out? Paul holds out Abraham as the great father of faith, and as he does so describes the only faith that really makes a difference: faith in the God who has the power to deliver what he promises.
