Bible: Romans 4:17-22

4:17 (as it is written, “I have made you the father of many nations). 1  He is our father 2  in the presence of God whom he believed – the God who 3  makes the dead alive and summons the things that do not yet exist as though they already do. 4  4:18 Against hope Abraham 5  believed 6  in hope with the result that he became the father of many nations 7  according to the pronouncement, 8 so will your descendants be.” 9  4:19 Without being weak in faith, he considered 10  his own body as dead 11  (because he was about one hundred years old) and the deadness of Sarah’s womb. 4:20 He 12  did not waver in unbelief about the promise of God but was strengthened in faith, giving glory to God. 4:21 He was 13  fully convinced that what God 14  promised he was also able to do. 4:22 So indeed it was credited to Abraham 15  as righteousness.
