I was reading Romans 4 the other day and verse 18 jumped off the page at me. Ever have one of those moments? You know the Bible story or passage well - have read and studied it numerous times - and suddenly you see something you've never seen before. In telling of Abraham's faith regarding the promise of Isaac, Paul writes in Romans 4:18, "In hope he believed against hope, that he should become the father of many nations, as he had been told, 'So shall your offspring be.'" Did you see the magnificent statement "In hope he believed against hope"? Another way to say this is tha
