''His faith did not leave him,and he did not doubt God's promise;his faith filled him with power and he gave praise to God.He was absolutely sure that God would be able to do what he had promised. That is why Abraham, through faith, 'was accepted as righteous' were not written for him alone. They were written also for us who are accepted as righteous, who believed in him who raised Jesus our Lord from death. Because of our sins he was given over to die, and he was raised to life in order to put right as God.
(Romans 4: 20-25)
