Texts: Genesis 15:1-6; Hebrews 11:1-3, 8-16; Luke 12:32-40
When Abram arrived at the place where God had blindly led him, do you know what he found? It wasn’t a land flowing with milk and honey. It wasn’t a gleaming city on a hill. He found a land full of strange people in the middle of a famine. “This,” God said, “is going to belong to you and to your descendants forever.” Whoopty-freakin’-doo.
