God’s Heroes: Abraham

C.T. Studdby C.T. Studd

Excerpt from Hero or Chocolate Soldier?

God Never Was A Chocolate Manufacturer, And Never Will Be. God’s men are always heroes. In Scripture you can trace their giant foot-tracks down the sands of time.

Abraham, a simple farmer, at a word from the Invisible God, marched, with family and stock, through the terrible desert to a distant land to live among a people whose language he could neither speak nor understand! Not bad that! But later he did even better, marching hot foot against the combined armies of five kings, flushed with recent victory, to rescue one man! His army? Just 318 odd fellows, armed like a circus crowd. And he won too. “He always wins who sides with God.” What pluck! Only a farmer! No war training! Yet what hero has eclipsed his feat? His open secret? He was The Friend Of God.
