He is Faithful, He Will Keep His Promises

The Lord God determined to save “the many” by means of “the one.” Out of the whole human race, He called one man to trust His promises and to become the means through which God’s mercy and compassion was fully realized. Abraham’s life of faith reflected the prayer of Augustine who prayed; “Grant what You command, and command what You does desire.” We are called to walk in the footsteps of faithful Abraham and to trust God’s exceedingly great and precious promises. Do you know them? Do they inform your daily walk and bring you comfort in times of trouble? The main points from the sermon taken from Genesis 12:1-9 (found below) are as follows:

  1. Faith listens when God speaks
  2. Faith obeys even when it does not make sense
  3. Faith receives the blessings promised by God
