Last Friday I started a new series, "The Man Who Became Himself," at the Man in the Mirror Bible Study. First up was, "How Did Abraham Become Himself?" (available online May 25th).
Abraham is nothing if not a study in faith. He was called to leave everything familiar to him and settle in an unknown land. By faith he obeyed (Hebrews 11:8).
He was promised a son, yet was still childless 24 years later. By faith, he was enabled to become a father (Hebrews 11:11).
Then God tested him by asking him to sacrifice the one thing he most wanted to keep--the son he loved so much. By faith, he passed the test (Hebrews 11:17).
What is faith?
