Re:Verse reading–Romans 4:1-25 (day one)
“What then shall we say that Abraham, our father has found?”–v 1.
Don’t believe the commercial. The true title belongs to someone else. About the Bible rather than beer. Truly, the most interesting man in the world.
His name is Abraham. Three world religions point back to his story as the foundation of their concept of God. Judaism. Christianity. Islam. He changed the world more than any army that ever marched. His impact is still felt. We are his offspring. He is our father.
What did Abraham find? That God is trustworthy. That the foundation of the human responsibility is to conclude this basic moral fact and then to genuinely trust Him. “Abraham believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness.” (Romans 4:3, Genesis 15:6)
Why is Abraham so fascinating? Because his life illustrates the same powerful principle by which God still saves men. He is the most interesting man in the world.
