Sermon Notes on Genesis 12:1-9
A new sermon but an old message that God continues to speak to each of us.
God’s call to each of us requires major adjustments to our life.
Abraham is supposed to leave what he knows and go to a place he doesn’t know.
Abraham was called to make a step of action and a step of faith.
God’s call on your life will always demand action but means little unless accompanied by faith.
Faith is both scary and exciting at the same time, because it is a journey into the unknown.
Instead of reasons for doing what we are called to do, God gives us promises.
The promise of adequate provision doesn’t mean ownership but asks what are we doing with the things God has provided.
The second promise has to do with the future which may be a ways off but will be worth the wait.
The third promise reaches beyond the physical and touches eternity as we leave our comfort zone to share the truth of Jesus.
God’s call knows no boundaries yet we erect barriers when He calls us.
The first we erect says, “I’m not capable,” but God can use us in spite of our lack of ability.
Another boundary is to disqualify ourselves is our past, thinking God could never use us because of what we have done.
One other boundary is age, thinking you are to young to too old to make a difference.
