Have you ever wondered where faith comes from? Paul says, “Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God.” He’s telling us that the Word of God provides the knowledge we need to trust God. We hear that from others in our life (like parents). Faith is passed from person to person. But there’s much more to it! It goes deeper.

The title of this presentation is Faith’s Origins – specifically, how our parents pass the faith to us and how we can pass it on to our children and the children of others.
Speaking of the resurrected saints, John writes, under the inspiration of God, in Revelation 17:4:
Revelation 17:4 – They will make war on the Lamb, and the Lamb will conquer them, for He is the Lord of lords and King of kings. And those with Him are called, chosen and faithful. We’re called, and if we respond to the calling, we’re chosen, and if we remain faithful, we get to be there at the end. So faith is a vital part of our victory in Christ.
I want you to think about some of the things God says about faith. Think about Abraham. Why did God call him? Because he was to be the father of the faithful, right? So he had to be a faithful man, didn’t he? Now there are two meanings there, when you look at that term father of the faithful. Spiritually, he’s the father of all the faithful, who follow God, even in the church. He’s our spiritual father, as well, in that sense. And the other one is, that he would pass the faith of God to his children. Let’s go to Genesis 18:18 and look and see what God says about that.
