Father Figures: Abraham

And the Scripture was fulfilled which says, “Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness.” And he was called the friend of God. James 2:23

In the early years of Facebook, the race was on to collect “friends” —people whose posts would show up in one’s news feed. The more “friends” the better! It became a status thing, with some users befriending tens of thousands of people, most of whom they didn’t know. So, Facebook put a cap on the number at 5,000—still an unreasonable number if you think about the definition of friend.

The Bible names only one person as being a friend of God: Abraham (2 Chronicles 20:7; Isaiah 41:8; James 2:23). Abraham was the person God called out of humanity to put in place the rescue mission for humanity. Through Abraham the Messiah would come to “gather together in one all things . . ., both which are in heaven and which are on earth” (Ephesians 1:10). So friend became a covenant term, signifying loyalty, blessing, and fruitfulness. Jesus established that covenant relationship with His disciples when He called them His friends (John 15:13-15).

On this Father’s Day, every Christian should renew their loyalty to God and enjoy the blessings of friendship with Him.

They are rich who have true friends. Thomas Fuller
