Genesis 12:1-9

“Journeying By Stages”

God’s covenant with Abram is for the blessing of all the families of the earth.”  Abram responds obediently, and sets off.  He’s not immediately and automatically a blessing, it seems.  It doesn’t all happen at once.  What about us?  Where are we in this narrative.  As spiritual descendants of Abram, how are we working to be a blessing to all the families of the earth?  Are we clear about who has sent us?  Are we confident about our direction of travel?  What will be the next stages of our journey?
