Quotable
 

God is in our past, He is in our future, and He is certainly in our present. 

— Charles R. Swindoll 

 

Wealthy Abraham could have been known for the size of his treasury, the land he owned, or even the greatness of his fame. However, his legacy is faith . . . and not just faith in words but in action. Abraham shod his faith with shoe leather when he journeyed to a land he’d never seen. He clothed it with generosity when he divided his portion with Lot, and he paraded it as courage when he defeated Kedorlaomer’s army. Regarding the outworking of Abraham’s faith, James commented, “His actions made his faith complete” (James 2:22).

Etched alongside faith in action on Abraham’s memorial is friendship with God — as James also noted, “he was even called the friend of God” (2:23). Abraham and his Lord spent time together and knew each other well. They shared openly, were committed to one another, and cultivated trust over time—just as best friends do.

We all yearn for an equally close relationship with God, don’t we? And so, we gather under the great Patriarch’s shadow to learn from his example. In this study, let’s listen in on one of Abraham’s conversations with his divine Friend, and we’ll discover the secrets of intimacy with the Almighty.
