Talking Things Over:

  1. Abraham did not have a Bible. How did he know about God’s promises?
  2. Why are Bible Study, catechism training, and church attendance so important to our faith?
  3. What does Hebrews 11:17-19 say about Abraham’s trust in God?
  4. Can a person simply decide to have faith?  What does it mean that faith is a gift of God?

 


Words to Remember:

Faith – the gift of God which lets us know God and trust Him.
Knowledge – We must know what God says in the Bible.  Knowing is an important part of our faith.
Infallible – Because the Bible is God’s word, we know that it cannot have any errors or mistakes in it. It can be trusted.
