Bible Study Series

Led by Pastor Shane 
“The Faith of Abraham!”
Lesson 4 of 13

Introduction:  Faith is placing our soul’s confidence in the character of God.  It is not the stretch of my mind; it is placing my soul’s confidence in the Person of God, in the character of God.  He never changes.  The story of Abraham is the story of a man who had great faith in God.  He obeyed the Lord even when he did not know where God was leading.  He had such confidence in God and he offered up his only son, believing that God could raise him from the dead.

Bible Background Reading:

Hebrews 11:8-10; James 2:21-23; Genesis 12:1-3. 17:1, 18:9-14; Matthew 19:26; I Peter 3:5-6; Genesis 22:1-13

Preparation Questions:

Day 1:   Read Hebrews 11:9-10 and list the things that Abraham did “by faith.”

Day 2:   In Genesis 17:1, by what name did God reveal Himself to Abraham?

Day 3:  According to James 2:21-23, what was Abraham called?

Day 4:   Compare Genesis 18:9-14 and Matthew 19:26.  What was the Lord teaching Abraham about Himself?

Day 5:  Read Hebrews 11:1 and I Peter 3:5-6.  In what ways did Sara exercise her own faith in God?

Day 6:   Read the story in Genesis 22:1-13 and compare this account with Hebrews 11:17-19.  How did Abraham face this trial?

Lesson Aims:

  • To see that faith is placing our soul’s confidence in the character of God.
  • To realize that God calls on us to believe Him and obey Him in the midst of an unbelieving world.
  • To understand that our outlook on life is totally different when we look through eyes of faith, because we see that this world is not our final destination.
  • To emphasize the importance of husbands and wives serving the Lord together and exercising faith in God together.
  • To have such faith in God that we are willing to yield all to the Lord and sacrifice whatever He requires of us.
