We read in Genesis 15:6 that “Abram believed the Lord, and He credited it to him as righteousness.” How can sinners by nature have any relationship with a holy God? Apart from the person of Christ and His redemptive work on our behalf, ours is indeed a hopeless case. Alistair Begg explains the doctrine of justification and the necessity of faith as the channel through which we receive God’s grace in salvation.
Venturing In Faith
Abraham’s journey of faith could be described as a series of new beginnings. Although his walk contained many pitfalls and failures, Abraham learned that with God, failure is never final. Abraham’s trust grew with each new beginning as he responded in obedience to God’s call. Throughout this series from Genesis, Alistair Begg explores faith as expressed through the changes and challenges of life. The measure of our faith grows as our understanding of God’s character grows, and we can walk boldly in light of His promises.
