Genesis 12:1-3, 15:1-7

Abram was a man chosen by God to be the earthly father of His people. God made a covenant with Abram and committed to him. God promised that Abram would have many descendents, even though at the time he and his wife were childless. God kept His promise to Abram, and through Abram’s story we are reminded that God created family.


Creation: Review

God created everything. Everything we see, hear, feel, taste, and that exists was created by Him. Not only did He create everything, but He created everything perfectly, including humanity. He created mankind in His very image and likeness to reflect His worth. All of creation was made just like He wanted and designed it to be. To His delight, God looked at everything He made and declared that it was good. All creation exists for God, is good, and was created to bring Him glory.
