Abraham’s faith had legs.
His example reminds us that we cannot please God…unless we have faith (see also Hebrews 11:6).
His life also shows us the benefits of a faith that is willing to work (see also James 2:17).
Had his head always been in the heavens, he wouldn’t have been much earthly benefit. And living in his body without faith would not have gotten him to a better place.
Our hope, like Abraham’s, is that God is not ashamed of the believer who trusts Him enough to act (Hebrews 11:16).
