Abraham & God’s Promise – Abraham’s Faith in God & God’s Unilateral Covenant

Today’s Reading:

Go outside and count the stars. How many can you count? Away from the city lights during a new moon, a person can see between 2,000 and 3,000 stars.


  1. God has already promised to bless Abram and make him a great nation. What additional promise did he make in today’s reading?
  2. The key verse to Abram’s faith is found in Genesis 15 (believing without seeing yet). Which verse do you think it is and why? How does Romans 4 emphasize the importance of Abram’s faith? How does it impact Christians?
  3. Abram received a prophecy that his descendants will be servants under difficult conditions for 400 years. Can you guess ahead in history to what Bible story that is?
  4. What similarities are there between the sacrifice associated with the covenant in Genesis 15 and that in Jeremiah 34.
