Abraham and the Torch

It is much easier to believe in God than to trust in God. God calls Abraham to live a life of faith, but Abraham struggles. He asks God how he knows that he can trust God. God responds with a demonstration that is one of the clearest pointers to the Gospel in the Old Testament. In so doing, God enables Abraham to truly live a life of faith. This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on November 3, 1996. Series "Daring to Draw Near". Scripture: Genesis 15:1-21
