Abram, now considered a hero of the faith and father of a great nation, was nothing extraordinary when introduced in Genesis 11. As Alistair Begg explains, however, God is never hindered by the background of those He chooses to redeem. Abram responded in faith to God’s command and looked forward to his future with God. When God shines the light of His glory through Christ in our hearts, we too must respond to His calling and seek His purpose for our lives.
Venturing In Faith
Abraham’s journey of faith could be described as a series of new beginnings. Although his walk contained many pitfalls and failures, Abraham learned that with God, failure is never final. Abraham’s trust grew with each new beginning as he responded in obedience to God’s call. Throughout this series from Genesis, Alistair Begg explores faith as expressed through the changes and challenges of life. The measure of our faith grows as our understanding of God’s character grows, and we can walk boldly in light of His promises.
