ABRAHAM: The Sojourner

Text: Genesis chapters 12-15

THE BIG PICTURE OF GOD’S PLAN

TO CREATE A PEOPLE FOR HIS OWN GLORY

Adam and Eve: The failure of sin

Noah: A fresh start that falters

The Tower of Babel revealed the godless ways of man

Abraham: The man of God’s choosing

GOD SPOKE TO ABRAM

“Go forth from your country, (leave your safety)

And from your relatives, (leave your security)

And from your father’s house (leave your status)

To the land I will show you.”

The Tower of Babel

Man’s Effort

Build a city for ourselves

A tower to reach into heaven

Make for ourselves a name

Fear of being scattered across the world

The Call of God

God’s Promise

I will make you a great nation I will bless you I will make your name great I will make you a blessing to the world

God’s Promises and Abram’s Response I will give you this land (12:7a) So he built an alter (vs. 7b) I will make your descendants numerous (13:16) (or be fruitful/multiply & fill the earth) So he built an alter (vs. 18) You will be the father of many descendants (15:4-5) Then he believed the Lord (vs. 6)
