Abraham Journeyed On
Dr. Tony Chute, Lead Pastor
Overview: The call of God to Abraham marks a significant turning point in the biblical narrative and in world history. Abraham is told to leave his family and familiar surroundings to go to a place yet to be revealed, whereupon the Lord promises to make him into a great nation through which all the families of the earth will be blessed. Abraham begins his journey by faith but has little knowledge of how God’s promises will unfold, yet he walks with the Lord and worships the Lord along the way. Due to a famine, Abraham journeys to Egypt, which leads him to compromise his faith by asking Sarah to pose as his sister. The Lord intervenes to ensure Sarah’s personal safety, and Abraham is shamefully expelled from Egypt. Though this start is not what one would expect from a man who became the model of faith, it provides important lessons for those who are still learning to walk with the Lord and love one another.
