The Man of Faith

Abraham is known for his faith in God. Although he was old & his wife Sarah had past the age of child bearing, he placed his trust in God when he was promised a son in his ripe old age.

Abraham never doubted God. Is it possible for us to have the faith that Abraham had? Faith is believing, trusting and hoping in God, in His power, knowing that He will keep His promises given to us in the bible. God also wishes to manifest His greatness and bless us and lift us up from our problems.

Abraham was called righteous because of his faith in God and willingness to persevere in the most difficult moments of his life. Secondly faith empowers us to believe that God is working powerfully in our lives and all we need to do is surrender our lives completely to him.

Through faith we are also able to glorify God and proclaim His majesty. We are His instruments and He uses us to work His miracles in this world so that people may believe in Him.

Let us look up to our Father Abraham so that we may have the same faith.

About Frank Padilla

Founder of the Couples for Christ (CFC) community. Way back in 1981, CFC was started through the initiative of the Ang Ligaya ng Panginoon Community (LNP). In January 1981, LNP gathered 16 couples who went through a Life in the Spirit Seminar, with the intent of bringing them into LNP. But instead they were kept together for a few months after the program, until it was decided that a new group would be established to emphasize family life renewal. It would be an outreach of LNP. Frank and Gerry Padilla were among the 16 couples that became members in June of 1981 when CFC was born. Frank quickly emerged to be a top leader, and in 1985, he was already the Executive Director, running the day-to-day work of the whole community. In 1986 he went full-time for CFC and has been serving the community since, through two separate splits the community saw. Today he serves as the Servant General of CFC-FFL (Couples for Christ-Foundation for Family and Life). Know more about the founder at CFC-FFL
