Abraham's Faith, a Strange Vision and the Birth of Ishmael (Genesis 15 & 16)


Genesis 15 opens with a most amazing promise, one in which we appear!  We then look at the faith of Abraham, who trusts God with his future. We are called higher by his example, as well as by Jesus' and Paul's teaching on the sin of worry. We also take a hard look at how the Scriptures define faith and righteousness -- so we too can have a faith like Abraham, that pleases God.  Finally, we cover the birth of Ishmael and the promise made to Hagar.
