22You see that faith was active along with his works, and faith was completed by his works; 23and the Scripture was fulfilled that says, “Abraham believed God, and it was counted to him as righteousness”—and he was called a friend of God. James 2:22-23
Abraham believed God. This was enough.
Faith is the quality of relationship with God that is active, trusting, and reliant.
Its a quality God loves to see.
He counts us as friends.
To get the rest of the story on Abraham read Genesis 11 – 25.
