Sermons about Abraham
This week we look at how God begins to reveal himself to one man particularly as opposed to relation to humanity generally. We consider the impact of God's covenant with Abraham and how that has an impact on us today.
Pastor Quentin's message today was based on Genesis 12:1-5, Romans 4:1-5, and the book/movie "The Shack".
The Lord not only sees our needs, but He has the power to meet our needs.
In chapter 15 of Genesis, the Lord once again gives Abram a vision to bolster his faith. God allays Abrams fears, first by telling him that he is his shield. Then God tells Abram that he is his very great reward. However, Abram still has some confusion and so asks a question. He wants clarification about God’s promise. Yet within the essence of Abram’s question lies the answer, which is that he needs God to come to him.
The Lord Sees our needs and provides for them. He is our Provider.
Who is Melchizedek? He is mentioned here in Genesis 14 as well as two other places of Scripture. As we aim to find out who Melchizedek was and what he did, we will gain greater insight into the person and work of our Lord Jesus Christ, which is our highest aim. We shall begin by first looking at this man that blessed Abram; finding out who he was, what he did, and how that impacted Abram. Then we shall look to see what the Scripture says about Jesus in relation to all of this and how that applies to us.
As we come to Genesis chapter 14, we find that Abram’s faith is once again put to the test. In order to rescue his nephew from captivity, Abram would have to overpower a much larger army with his servants, who were not trained soldiers. The second test will come at the end of the chapter, when Abram is tested to accept the riches and accolades of the world. This is perhaps the hardest test of all.
Much of Abram’s blessing was stored up for the future and he had to rely on God’s word alone. That is certainly the case with the text before us, as this man of faith faced trouble in paradise. The first trouble that he faced was with outward circumstances and foreigners. The second trouble that confronted Abram was a family issue.
Grace is always at work. Even one of the most revered figure in all of religious history, the man called Father Abraham, needed the grace of God. Today, we see how God's grace comes to us and changes us for his glory and our good.
