Previous series: The Promise
10 June 2011
An ancient oath that can change your life. (Also, download free ebooklet: 40 Days with Abraham.)
4000 years ago God made The Promise. Not just a promise, but The Promise.
In short he revealed himself to Abraham, a childless moon-worshipper, and said, ‘I choose you. Not because you’re anything special, but because I’m God. And I promise – as a display of my undeserved grace - to bless you, and to bless the entire world through you. Trust me.’
And God has been good on his word. For starters, he gave Abraham the ride of his life. But the fulfilment of The Promise extends beyond Abraham’s lifetime. In fact it is fulfilled in Abraham’s numerous-as-the-stars descendants – both the physical ones who share his blood, and the spiritual ones who share his faith.
In fact, God makes the same promise to every Christ-follower: ‘I choose you. Not because you’re anything special, but because I’m God. And I promise – as a display of my undeserved grace - to bless you, and to bless the world through you. Trust me.’
If you let it, The Promise can become an anchor for your soul, and a motivation that propels you forward with unstoppable, world-blessing force! Come spend 8 Sundays exploring the story behind The Promise. On Sunday 12 June we start this series across all our congregations – we hope to see you there…
