Genesis 11:27-12:3 :: Get Out...To


The LORD turned His attention to an individual for the benefit of all.

Abraham was a man who served other gods. He was a man who, with his wife Sarah, sat in barrenness – not only that of being childless, but that of a spiritual wilderness. He was a man to whom the LORD revealed Himself and called unto Himself – out of barrenness into blessedness by faith.

To each of us the LORD declares, “Get out!” In the gospels Jesus communicates the same thing when He says, “Repent!” At the same time, He declares the “to” – the goal, the finish, the end.

Faith is in the middle. It’s our “–” and our “…”. This is Jesus’ command to, “Follow Me.” The “to” is, “I will make you,” “I will show you,” and “I will bless you.”

The gospel was preached by God to Abraham: “In you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.”

Those who are of faith in Jesus are blessed with believing Abraham.
