It was not through the law that the promise was made to Abraham and his descendants that he would inherit the world, but through the righteousness that comes from faith. Romans 4:13

 

2 Samuel 7:4-16, Psalm 89, Romans 4:13-22  & Matthew 1:16-24

 

By faith we are recognized as co-heirs to the Promise God made Abraham that we would inherit the world. By our righteousness in faith we are afforded the same opportunity as all descendants shows how justification through faith introduces one to the gift of a new life in Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit. Abraham never doubted God’s Promise for “He did not doubt God’s promise in unbelief; rather, he was empowered by faith and gave glory to God.” Romans 4:20 Abraham’s belief empowered him to never doubt God’s promise in unbelief. Abraham was able to resolve any doubts in his commitment to living God’s promise.

 

We are afforded further explanation of this in Hebrews 11:8–12, which emphasizes the faith of Abraham and Sarah. “By faith Abraham obeyed when he was called to go out to a place that he was to receive as an inheritance; he went out, not knowing where he was to go. By faith he sojourned in the promised land as in a foreign country, dwelling in tents with Isaac and Jacob, heirs of the same promise; for he was looking forward to the city with foundations, whose architect and maker is God. By faith he received power to generate, even though he was past the normal age—and Sarah herself was sterile—for he thought that the One who had made the promise was trustworthy.”

 

By faith we subdue our lives to conform to the Promise of Everlasting Life in Heaven with our Savior Jesus Christ. It is by our faith we can see the Truth in His Word and believe as Joseph did when he was told by an Angel to wed Mary and name his child Jesus. Today we celebrate this faith of Joseph and continue our lives led by faith, charity and love. For we act, live and breathe our faith in Christ as written in Hebrews 11:1: “Faith is the realization of what is hoped for and evidence of things not seen.”

 

Dear God, we pray to realize our faith in Your Promise each and every day. We pray prayers of peace and guidance LORD. Renew our mind for Your Purpose. We pray for anyone who is hurting and lonely. In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
