Genesis 17:1-7, 15-16 February 25, 2015

Posted by Ventura Dreamer in Blogroll.

God told Abram he was making a covenant with him. God changed his name to Abraham, the father of nations. Not only that, the 99-year-old’s wife, Sarai, would now be Sarah and the old barren woman would bear a son!

God invites Abram and Sarai “to a free fall off a cliff, away from security, away from the known, away from a life that seemed to be winding down more or less comfortably.”*

The two humans accepted God’s invitation, putting their trust in God and putting into motion the covenant that would become the foundation of three major religions today.
