He was absolutely convinced that God was able to do anything he promised.
And because of Abraham's faith, God declared him to be righteous.
Now this wonderful truth -- that God declared him to be righteous -- wasn't just for Abraham's benefit.
It was for us, too, assuring us that God will also declare us to be righteous if we believe in God, who brought Jesus our Lord back from the dead.
He was handed over to die because of our sins, and he was raised from the dead to make us right with God.
