Now the LORD said to Abram, "Go from your country and your kindred and your father’s house to the land that I will show you. And I will make of you a great nation, and I will bless you and make your name great, so that you will be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and him who dishonors you I will curse, and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed." Genesis 12:1-3
Today we heard a wonderful sermon. We’re starting a new series on the Covenants God gives in the Bible.
This week we looked at the Covenant given to Abraham (Genesis 12, 15, 17 and 22). It was a sermon packed full of wisdom, bits of truth, woven together.
One that struck me was of God’s MERCY.
The God who is revealed in the Old Testament is often seen first and foremost as a God of RIGHTEOUS FURY AND ANGER BURNED OUT AGAINST HIS ENEMIES.
