Sometimes, we try to engineer circumstances to bring Gods will to pass. Abraham did that when God promised him countless offspring. Since his wife was too old, he slept with their Egyptian maid Hagar. The result was conflict and enmity.
In Genesis 15, God makes an unconditional covenant with Abraham. God says He will do what He promises no matter what. Let's learn why that covenant means that the work of Jesus is all that's needed for a believer to gain eternal life.
In Genesis 15, God promises Abraham many offspring and pledges to give them much of the Middle East. Now thats a big promise! God guaranteed a land and a people to bring forth the Redeemer.
Lot chose to ally with the King of Sodom, to his eventual ruin. Abraham paid homage to the King of Salem, Melchizedek, priest of the God Most High. From that choice has flowed blessing to the entire world.
The book of Genesis tells of beginnings - creation, the Fall, and God's intent to send a Redeemer through the nation of His choosing. Abraham is key to God's blossoming story of redemption, and the Lord granted him an unusual victory. Abraham responded to this victory with generosity.
Abraham let his nephew Lot pick the land he wanted, and he agreed to take what was left over. Lot quickly chose the best even though it would lead to ruin. God gives His best to those who entrust their future to Him.
After backsliding in Egypt, Abraham returned to God. His renewed faith is seen during a dispute with his nephew Lot. Let's learn from Abraham why we don't have to manipulate circumstances. God has our lives in His hands.
