One can never fully understand Abraham at all without seeing him not only encountering the gospel but encountering Jesus himself.
The story of Abraham begins very close to the beginning of the Bible and sets the stage for the entire Bible.
Like Abraham, our father let us then count our God and His promises in the gospel as more precious than all other things.
In the promises that come to us in Christ, we have lost nothing and gained everything.
We, like our father in the faith, our on our way. And thus far, the Lord has led us and He will lead us home.
God’s covenant motivates Him. God has directed His behavior to His word and His word motivates all God ’s actions because God is glorified when He keeps His word.
Seeing the unseen promises of God leaves us living at peace as far as it is possible.
As we contemplate Genesis 13:10 we should rightly wonder just how far Lot actually lifted up his eyes. The more we think about it we might conclude that he lifted up his eyes far enough to see just a little bit beyond the immediate.
When many of us make the choice between righteousness and personal advantage we often find that the choice is not one of our own making rather the choice is suddenly thrust upon us.
