Hebrews 11:11-12

 

11 By faith even Sarah herself, when she was unable to have children, received power to conceive offspring, even though she was past the age, since she[f] considered that the one who had promised was faithful.12 Therefore, from one man—in fact, from one as good as dead—came offspring as numerous as the stars of the sky and as innumerable as the grains of sand along the seashore.

 

 

 

Gen. 18:12- So she laughed to herself: "After I am worn out and my lord is old, will I have delight?"

 

 

 

 

Hebrews 11: 11 By faith even Sarah herself, when she was unable to have children, received power to conceive offspring, even though she was past the age, since she[f] considered that the one who had promised was faithful.12 Therefore, from one man—in fact, from one as good as dead—came offspring as numerous as the stars of the sky and as innumerable as the grains of sand along the seashore.

 

 

  1. God can use any man, to be a great father who is willing to be faithful!

 

 

 

 

  1. Any father is only as good as his God!

 

 

 

 

Hebrews 11

17 By faith Abraham, when he was tested, offered up Isaac. He received the promises and yet he was offering his one and only son, 18 the one to whom it had been said, Your offspring[g] will be called through Isaac.[h] 19 He considered God to be able even to raise someone from the dead; therefore, he received him back, figuratively speaking.[i]

 

 

  1. A faithful wife makes it easier to be a faithful father.

 

 

 

 

  1. God is a faithful father…His goodness is not dependent on your faithfulness!

 

 

 

 

Romans 8:15

15 You did not receive a spirit of slavery to fall back into fear. Instead, you received the Spirit of adoption, by whom we cry out, “Abba,[g]Father!”

 

 

Romans 5:8 Christian Standard Bible (CSB)

But God proves his own love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

 

 

 

 

Romans 8:

32 He did not even spare his own Son but offered him up for us all. How will he not also with him grant us everything? 33 Who can bring an accusation against God’s elect? God is the one who justifies.

 

Romans 8

16 The Spirit himself testifies together with our spirit that we are God’s children, 17 and if children, also heirs—heirs of God and coheirs with Christ—if indeed we suffer with him so that we may also be glorified with him.

 

Hebrews 11

Now without faith it is impossible to please God, since the one who draws near to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him.

 

 

John 1

12 But to all who did receive him, he gave them the right to be[e] children of God, to those who believe in his name,13 who were born, not of natural descent,[f] or of the will of the flesh, or of the will of man,[g] but of God.
