Exemplar of Faith


Though hardly prefect, Abraham was a man of God, and time and again in the Bible, even in the New Testament, he is used as an example of faithfulness and of what it means to be saved by faith (see Gen. 15:6, Gal. 3:6).


Read Hebrews 11:8-19. What does it tell us about Abraham and his faith that is so important for anyone who wants to be a missionary of God in whatever capacity possible?


The Lord wanted to use Abraham, but the first thing He had to do was get him to leave his past behind. The lesson there should be obvious to any of us, especially those of us who have pasts not in harmony with the will and law of God, which actually includes us all.

Amazing, too, was the fact that though Abraham left, “he did not know where he was going,” (Heb. 11:8, NIV). Though most missionaries know where they are going, at least in geographical sense, in another sense when any of us takes a giant leap of faith and give our hearts totally to God, we really don’t know (at least in the short run) where we will wind up (though in the long run, we have absolute assurance). If we did know, it wouldn’t require that much faith; hence, not knowing is perquisite of truly being able to live by faith.

Another crucial point here is that Abraham was looking to “the city with foundations, whose architect and builder is God” (vs. 10, NIV). Abraham kept the big picture in mind; he knew that whatever he faced here, whatever toils and struggles, it would all be worth it in the end.

He knew, too, that he wasn’t just a stranger in “the promised land” but that he was one of many “strangers and pilgrim on the earth” (vs. 13, NKJV). This world, and our lives in it, as precious as they appear to us now (it’s all we have now), is not the whole story, not by a long shot.

And, of course, the greatest example of faith in the Old Testament was what Abraham was willing to do to his son on Mount Moriah at the command of God.


In what ways have you experienced what it means to step out in faith? What hardships have you faced? What joys have you experienced? Knowing what you know now, what might you have done differently?
