Let us follow Abraham’s example of living a generous lifestyle for God. He trusted in God’s promise, His provision, and His generosity. This revelation allowed Abraham to have an open-handed attitude with Lot because he trusted in the Lord, and not in the outcome of Lot’s decision.
As Jesus called us to be His friends (John 15:13-16), let’s learn from the first person whom God called Friend - Abraham (Is 41:8). In Genesis 12, we learned that Abraham actively obeyed God. Let’s emulate this attribute, obedience through action, as it will enable us to walk fully into the promises of God and be called Friends of God.
The most important revelation we have, is our revelation of who Jesus is. Let’s keep our passion and love for Jesus alive and be a church that is captivated by Jesus. Our revelation of Jesus will keep us from dry Christianity and going through the motions. David pursued and longed for the presence of God, even when his own son was trying to kill him. (Ps. 63) We also can run into the Presence of God and receive grace and mercy in our time of need. (Heb. 4:16)
