Story of Redemption 3.2 - Abraham Has a Great Faith Response

From Part 3 - Faith and the Promise

Conversational English Practice / Discussion Questions:

  • What made Abram "believe God" when he reaffirms his promise?
  • The Bible is filled with "laments" - cries of hurt, heartache, and questions for God for where he is in all of this. What does God's response to Abram's question show us about how God handles our questions, frustrations, and laments?
  • When God appears to Abram and tells him that "he is his shield," that he is there for him, Abram expresses his frustration that God has not yet fulfilled his promise of a child, saying, "What can you do for me?" When have you been frustrated with God and questioned him?
  • God blesses Abram soon after he starts to follow him with an additional "land promise," promising him the land of Israel. What are some possible ways God may bless us for following him?
  • What do you think of Abram's decision to follow God's call and "go to the land that he will show him?"
