Message for January 24, 2021 from Pastor Shirley

Hebrews 11:8 “Urged on by faith Abraham, when he was called, obeyed and went forth to a place which he was destined to receive as an inheritance; and he went, although he did not know or trouble his mind about where he was to go”. 
Abraham received the promises of God again and again, because he was fully persuaded.  When God gave His word to Abraham to make him a father of many nations he refused to look at his own natural circumstances. What he did consider was what God had told him. He was fully persuaded.
He never stopped believing God’s promise, for he was made strong in his faith to father a child. And because he was mighty in faith and convinced that God had all the power needed to fulfill his promises, Abraham glorified God! So now you can see why Abraham’s faith was credited to his account as righteousness (right standing) before God Romans 4:20-22
The good news for believers today is found in verse 23-25- And this declaration was not just spoken over Abraham, but also over us. For when we believe and embrace the one who brought our Lord Jesus back to life, perfect righteousness will be credited to our account as well. Jesus was handed over to be crucified for the forgiveness of our sins and was raised back to life to prove that he had made us right with God!
