A Bible study on faith
Yes? Get used to it…
Have you ever thought about how much faith God has in you—that he would ask so much of you just when you think you don’t have it to give? It’s like that wonderful line from The Count of Monte Cristo, “it doesn’t matter you don’t believe in God, He believes in you.”
How many times was Abraham asked to take a leap of faith? His story, starting in Genesis 11:27 and running through 25:11 is a series of improbable requests from God. Leave home, fight crazy battles to defend a thoughtless nephew, wait forever for his son to be born, keep hearing the same promises over and over, when his son is born nearly sacrifice him on an altar. What is amazing is how Abraham never failed to jump. And God never failed to catch him.
It is hard to relate to a character whose life was lived more than 4,000 years ago—but sometimes a piece of contemporary culture, like The Count of Monte Cristo movie or the Twilight Saga, can open our eyes again to the Bible’s eternal truths.
