FOUNDATION (Galatians 3)

“Look now toward heaven, and count the stars if you are able to number them.” And He said to him, “So shall your descendants be.” And he (Abram) believed in the Lord, and He accounted it to him for righteousness.

SECOND CHANCE

He knew his actions didn’t support his earlier claim of loyalty and devotion. He was profoundly ashamed. He was overwhelmed by his failure. He couldn’t trust his feelings, so he appealed to Jesus who knew all that was in his heart.

FOUNDATION (1 Corinthians 15)

I also received that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures, and that He was seen by Cephas, then by the twelve. After that He was seen by over five hundred brethren at once, of whom the greater part remain to the present, but some have fallen asleep. After that He was seen by James, then by all the apostles. Then last of all He was seen by me also, as by one born out of due time.
