Join us as we continue with our Great Faith series. This week Pastor Neli compares our motives. Are we cultivating an environment of faithfulness for others or are we building up expectations just to let them down? There may have been expectations that you’ve had but you come across situations of disappointment. Like Abraham, we are far from perfect. God entrusts great purpose to imperfect people. What do you trust when the pressure is on?
That is why it depends on faith, in order that the promise may rest on grace and be guaranteed to all his offspring—not only to the adherent of the law but also to the one who shares the faith of Abraham, who is the father of us all, as it is written, “I have made you the father of many nations”—in the presence of the God in whom he believed, who gives life to the dead and calls into existence the things that do not exist.
– Romans 4:16-17 (ESV)
