Good Morning Warrior!
Hallelujah, It’s The Lord’s Day!
Word for the Day:
(1 Chronicles 2)
“Abraham, the father of faith”
Text: 1 Chronicles 2:1
“These were the sons of Israel: Reuben, Simeon, Levi, Judah, Issachar, Zebulun, Dan, Joseph, Benjamin, Naphtali, Gad, and Asher.”
“Abraham, the father of faith,” is on our menu for Breakfast this morning.
He fathered Isaac, the son of Promise; and Ishmael, the son of the bond woman.
You and I today trace our spiritual lineage to Abraham through Isaac, the son of Promise.
Abraham received God’s Promise of a son by Faith; which is why he is known as the father of faith.
He is the first of three patriarchs of God’s People; Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob/Israel.
Our Faith in God’s Covenant of Grace through Faith in the work of Jesus Christ on the Cross makes you and I descendants of Abraham:
“For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus.
For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ.
There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus.
And if you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.”(Gal.3:26-29).
Now we begin with the sons of Israel and will focus on the next 2 1/2 chapters on Israel’s son Judah. The reason of this emphasis on Judah is because it was the tribe of the Dynasty of King David where Messiah/Son of Man/Son of David would come.
These are our spiritual fathers!
These are our spiritual roots!
These are the Covenants and Promises handed down to you and I as heirs and descendants of Abraham, the father of faith, as well as being joint heirs with our Commander Jesus Christ as His Warriors! (Rom.8:17).
Warrior at your side,
Jesus and Billy
