The Most Incredible Promise of All

Abraham was a former idol-worshiper from Ur who was well past the age for fathering children when God promised him numerous descendants and worldwide blessing. All the patriarch did was believe this incredible promise, and God counted him righteous. But Paul says this truth is about more than Abraham; it applies to us as well. We too can be declared righteous by God if we will only trust in that most incredible promise of all, namely, that the death and resurrection of Christ is the basis of our right standing with God. Justification by faith is not a new doctrine.” -- David Burnette
