Back to the Beginning: Genesis 18:17-33

Today read Genesis 18:17-33 as we continue our way through the beginning. Open up a Bible or open up the link.

“… For I have chosen him, that he may command his children
and his household after him to keep the way of the Lord by doing
righteousness and justice, so that the Lord may bring to Abraham
what he has promised him.”
Genesis 18:19
In these words to Abraham, I hear a call to all Believers: 

“… Go therefore and make disciples of all nations,
baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son
and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all
that I have commanded you. …
Matthew 28:19-20 ESV
Abraham was chosen to lead his children and his household in the way of the Lord by doing what was right and just.
We too, as Believers, are chosen to lead our children, neighbors, friends, and co-workers in the Lord’s way, and do what is right and just in His eyes.
Abraham was willing to risk his life before God in order to seek justice on behalf of the righteous who may have been residing in Sodom and Gomorrah. 
We too, are to be willing to risk our lives before God in order to seek justice on behalf of other Believers. Interceding. Giving. Standing up for truth.
Because of Abraham’s faithfulness, we have the promise of salvation which came through Jesus’s life, crucifixion, and death. We have the promise of the Holy Spirit residing in us to help and guide us in fulfilling His call on our lives.
As boldly as Abraham, we need to walk faithfully before our heavenly Father, so others won’t miss the promise.
Lord, thank You for the call to make disciples,
so others might know Your promise, love, and salvation.
May I be faithful to Your call on my life.
