‘…I no longer live, but Christ lives in me ‘ ~ Galatians 2:20
There are three important instructions that God gave to Abraham. Firstly, God told him – “Go from your country, your people and your father’s household to the land I will show you.” Secondly, after Lot seperated from him, God said, “Look around from where you are, to the north and south, to the east and west. All the land that you see I will give to you and your offspring forever….Go, walk through the length and breadth of the land, for I am giving it to you.” Thirdly, when Abraham was ninety nine years old, God appeared again and said, “I am God Almighty, walk before me faithfully and be blameless…This is my covenant with you and your descendants after you, the covenant you are to keep: Every male among you shall be circumcised. You are to undergo circumcision, and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and you.”
These clear instructions came as part of the journey that took him out of his home and into the unknown unexplored land, made him to travel extensively and finally partake of a covenant by circumcision at the gae of ninety nine.
There came one greater than Abraham, who left his heavenly abode and all the glory above, was born into this world, travelled extensively throughout Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria and finally became the mediator of a new covenant by the offering of his own life as a sacrifice for our sins – Christ the LORD!
Your journey in following Christ will call for choices that must be made at different levels. Some will touch the outside of your world, there will be changes in social settings. Some will require you to cope with changes in total life-settings. Some will touch upon the ‘inside’ of you – your will and your identity. How far are you willing to go?
Prayer – “Dear Heavenly Father, thank you for your great love for me. Help me yield myself to you completely and live a life that is fully surrendered to you alone. Amen.”
