Sermon: Blessed

What does it mean to be #blessed?

Abraham receives God’s blessings not because of who he is and what he is done, but because of who God is.

God calls Abraham out of his life, to follow God and receive this blessing. He calls Abraham into the unknown, away from his home, he asks him to rely on God.

When God calls us OUT of something, he is calling us INTO something better.
