Genesis 12, the call of Abram, his journey.


The command came with a promise:

This promise is valid even for us Christians. It is the blessing that comes with faith:

And not Abraham’s offspring, but to all that has come to faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, as is written in

This is interesting. Abraham went in faith. Yet, when trouble started he did not have faith that God would protect him through the famine, but resorted to deceit to stay alive. It caused trouble, and God had to bail him out. This is one strong argument why I believe the Bible. It shows even Abraham with faults and failing faith.
