Grounded in grace, framed in purpose, and prompted and sustained by God, Abraham was committed to being an instrument for God’s glory. In Genesis 18, this meant interceding in prayer on behalf of Sodom. Looking to Abraham as an example, Alistair Begg calls us to the discipline of intercessory prayer. In light of God’s character, and by His grace, we must examine our relationship with Him so that we might exercise this critical ministry.
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.
