Standing on, Following, and Remembering the Promises of God
Genesis: Ordering Chaos
God will shake up the trajectory of Genesis, and thus, the Bible, by making incredible promises to a man named Abram (Genesis 12:1-9). To fully appreciate those promises, we must grasp whether we receive any benefits from them. The connections between Abram's promises and ours are made most clear in the light of Jesus, the child born in Abram's line, who gives life to us all. When we understand how God's promises 3,500 years ago endure today, albeit in transformed ways, we will be invited to stand on, follow, and remember God's promises moving forward.
