“The Lord said to Abram, ‘Go…'” Genesis 12:1.
God calls Abram and Sarai in Genesis 12:1 and this marks a turning point. Before chapter 12, death seems to reign. After, it is call, promise and life.
But the call, for Abram, is something to answer. One way or the other. It is a moment for him and Sarai that we all have. How they respond defines their life. Go into the unknown, with faith. Or stay where they are and make it on their own.
Jesus said, “Those who try to make their life secure will lose it, but those who lose their life will keep it.” We have been given much, and out of God’s abundance to us, we respond.
Lord God, grant that we may say ‘yes’ to your call to follow, in faith and in trust. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
