We are glad you have chosen to join us today. May these verses of Scripture help deepen your experience of God this morning as well as be a resource beyond today.

Scripture: Genesis 12: 1-9 (NIV)

The Call of Abram

12 The Lord had said to Abram, “Go from your country, your people and your father’s household to the land I will show you.

“I will make you into a great nation,
    and I will bless you;
I will make your name great,
    and you will be a blessing.
I will bless those who bless you,
    and whoever curses you I will curse;
and all peoples on earth
    will be blessed through you.”

So Abram went, as the Lord had told him; and Lot went with him. Abram was seventy-five years old when he set out from Harran. He took his wife Sarai, his nephew Lot, all the possessions they had accumulated and the people they had acquired in Harran, and they set out for the land of Canaan, and they arrived there.

Abram traveled through the land as far as the site of the great tree of Moreh at Shechem. At that time the Canaanites were in the land. The Lord appeared to Abram and said, “To your offspring I will give this land.” So he built an altar there to the Lord, who had appeared to him.

From there he went on toward the hills east of Bethel and pitched his tent, with Bethel on the west and Ai on the east. There he built an altar to the Lord and called on the name of the Lord.

Then Abram set out and continued toward the Negev.

 

 

 

 

"Lean on Me"

By Bill Withers

 

Sometimes in our lives we all have pain
We all have sorrow
But if we are wise

We know that there's always tomorrow

Lean on me, when you're not strong
And I'll be your friend
I'll help you carry on
For it won't be long
'Til I'm gonna need
Somebody to lean on

 

Please swallow your pride
If I have faith you need to borrow
For no one can fill those of your needs
That you won't let show

 

You just call on me brother, when you need a hand
We all need somebody to lean on
I just might have a problem that you'll understand
We all need somebody to lean on

 

Lean on me, when you're not strong
And I'll be your friend
I'll help you carry on
For it won't be long
'Til I'm gonna need
Somebody to lean on

 

You just call on me brother, when you need a hand
We all need somebody to lean on
I just might have a problem that you'll understand
We all need somebody to lean on

 

If there is a load you have to bear
That you can't carry
I'm right up the road
I'll share your load

 

If you just call me (call me)
If you need a friend (call me) call me uh huh(call me) if you need a friend (call me)
If you ever need a friend (call me)
Call me (call me) call me (call me) call me
(Call me) call me (call me) if you need a friend
(Call me) call me (call me) call me (call me) call me (call me) call me (call me)

“The Bible @ 60,000 Feet:  The Call of Abram”

July 24, 2016

 

Warm Up:

When you think of “being called” what comes to mind? What questions does it raise? Any experiences where you felt this kind of communication or connection from God?

 

Diving In:

  • As you hear about the overview of the Bible what is helpful for you? Do you have a favourite section or part of the Bible?
  • What strikes you as significant about Abraham in the following list:
    • From the lineage of Noah
    • Man of faith
    • Seen as the Father of Judaism, Christianity and Islam
    • Imperfect human through whom God chose to act
    • Other
  • In Genesis 12:1 Abram is asked by God to leave his home and go to a new land “that I will show you”. What are some of the challenges you see with this invitation?
  • In Genesis 12:2 he is told that he will be blessed to be a blessing. How is this central to the work and life of Jesus as well as to the Christian life? What are some examples in your own life or in our world today where yo
  • Abram experiences many challenges along the way – with his family relationships, not being able to have a child, a new life that is so different from what he had, etc – and yet somehow God remains faithful and in the end everything works out. Reflect on God’s faithfulness to Abraham as well as this same faithfulness in your life when you have responded or said yes to God.

 

Take Home:

Which prayer do you most need to pray:

  • God give me clarity
  • God give me courage
God make me a blessing
