Blessed to be a blessing

The Lord had said to Abram, “Go from your country, your people and your father’s household to the land I will show you.

“I will make you into a great nation,
    and I will bless you;
I will make your name great,
    and you will be a blessing. 
I will bless those who bless you,
    and whoever curses you I will curse;
and all peoples on earth
    will be blessed through you.”

Genesis 12:1-3 (NIV)

Abram ( or Abraham) was called by God to leave everything that was his security – location, family etc and to follow God.  His calling goes a lot deeper than just moving to a new house.  He was going to be at the centre of God’s mission.  God would bless him – to be a blessing to the nations.

Why Abraham? We do not know.  This is the first time he is mentioned in Scripture. He had not built altars or done amazing things, and yet God saw something in Abraham that caused Him to choose Abram.

If you have not read the whole story of Abraham, I would recommend it. He is later known as a “Friend of God” (Isaiah 41:8)

Abraham was not only a man of God, but he was also a man of action. When God said “Go”, Abraham did not say a word, he just started packing – his immediate family, part of his extended family, all their possessions and household, including livestock – quite a crew from the sound of it.

Sometimes the response to action is a lot harder than the belief in God’s call.  When we are prompted to do something by God we must move from belief to action.  Often this is a hard transition.  It means we must stick our necks out and do something. It is not enough to understand something clearly at last or to walk in the light. It is not even enough to live in the light – we must BE the light.

God is calling us to be a people of Action! 
What is he nudging you to do?  
(Meditate on John 14:15)

Blessings
