The Bible names Abraham 309 times, but because of his faith, his name is inscribed upon the whole of the Middle East and upon world history to this day. We can learn a lot about Abraham from the book of Genesis.
I would like to share a story with you that has touched me deeply. It is about an American soldier in the Vietnam War.

Stir up that fire! Use the fan on the dying embers. The word of God and the gifts of the Spirit are our weapons against the attack of the enemy.
