“And so it happened just as the Scriptures say: “Abraham believed God, and God counted him as righteous because of his faith.”  He was even called the friend of God.”  James 2:23 (NLT)

Two Promises

Promise #1: A ________________ from his own body. (1-6)

“The Lord is my strength and shield. I trust Him with all my heart. He helps me, and my heart is filled with joy. I burst out in songs of thanksgiving.”  Psalm 28:7 (NLT)

“For our sake He made Him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in Him we might become the righteousness of God.” II Corinthians 5:21 (ESV)

“So the promise is received by faith. It is given as a free gift. And we are all certain to receive it, whether or not we live according to the law of Moses, if we have faith like Abraham’s. For Abraham is the father of all who believe. That is what the Scriptures mean when God told him, “I have made you the father of many nations...” Romans 4:16-17a (NLT)

Promise #2: I will _______________ you this land. (7-21)

“On that day the Lord made a covenant with Abram, saying, “I give this land to your offspring.” Genesis 15:18 (CSB)
