Abraham As Our Example
Abraham's obedience. Gen.12: 4; Heb. 11:8.
Abraham's intercession. Gen. 18:22-33
Abraham's fear of God (offering of his son). Gen. 22:12; Heb. 11:17
Abraham's faith in God. Gen. 15:6; Heb. 11:9-10
Abraham's faith in resurrection. Heb. 11:19
Abraham built altars and called upon the name of the Lord. Gen. 12:8; Gen. 13:4
Abraham was generous to His nephew (Gen. 13:5-11) and fought to rescue him. Gen. 14: 12-24.
Abraham gave tithe ( Gen. 14:20) and was blessed. Gen. 14:19-20.
The scriptures (2 Chron. 20:7, James 2:23) call Abraham the friend of God.
Abraham's relationship with God developed to a deeper and deeper friendship, as can be seen in His repeated interactions with God. Abraham viewed God as His friend, not only his supreme authority.
[Two friends helped in preparing the above notes.]
