Great, not second-rate…
“Now the LORD had said to Abram:
‘Get out of your country,
From your family
And from your father’s house,
To a land that I will show you.
I will make you a great nation;
I will bless you
And make your name great;
And you shall be a blessing.
I will bless those who bless you,
And I will curse him who curses you;
And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed (Genesis 12:1-3 NKJ).”
Easier said than done?
When God speaks, it is done already. He is eternal and all powerful. It will happen.
True greatness is not easily recognized in our me generation.
“At that time the disciples came to Jesus, saying, ‘Who then is greatest in the kingdom of heaven?’ Then Jesus called a little child to Him, set him in the midst of them, and said, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, unless you are converted and become as little children, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven. Therefore whoever humbles himself as this little child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. Whoever receives one little child like this in My name receives Me (Matthew 18:1-5 NKJ).”
The family of God is blessed through the humility and faith of Abraham (Abram).
Yes indeed, God made his name great.
One thought on “True Greatness…”
Amen! It’s a great post for reminding us of our origins. I find it so amazing to think the Almighty God stoops to pick us up when we fall, not as a judge but as a Father.
