Father Abraham Had Many Sons

The life of Abraham was marked by faithfulness and trust in the promises of God, which was “imputed to him as righteousness.”  In the gospel, the righteousness of Christ is imputed to those whose lives are marked by faithfulness.  Salvation is not found in stellar law-keeping, but rests in simple Abrahamic faith in, and obedience to, the promise of God to raise up all who believe and to give them an eternal inheritance.
