Abraham is called to leave his country, his family, and his father’s house to go to a place that God will show him. But God had not shown him yet; this was so he would walk by faith and not by sight. Each part of the command corresponded to a promise that was dependent upon Abraham’s obedience. Abraham would lose much in exile but he will gain in the end. The blessings upon Abraham would not merely be for himself, but he would be a medium of blessing to others. God promises His providential protection and care of Abraham. God used the obedience of Abraham to bless all the families of the earth, because from his line would come the Messiah. When we step out in obedience to the commands and call of God we cannot calculate or estimate the extent of the blessing that God will bring to others through us. Abraham did not depart alone. The call was personal to Abraham but although he obeyed the call as an individual he did so within community. When God purposes to do a redemptive work He does not only call individuals, but He calls a community, a Church, His Body. Lot went with Abraham and so did Sarah his wife. God called both Abraham and Sarah to play complimentary roles in His purpose of redemption. And they were called to compliment each other through different roles and responsibilities. Together, united by their faith in God, they were used for the redemptive purposes of God and from both of them came the seed of Christ. When Abraham entered Canaan he was not alone in the land of promise. He did not look around at what he saw but he looked to the LORD by faith and held onto His promises. He had no descendants or land. But he still held onto the promises of God by faith. Click here to listen: Land of Promise
