The Call of Obedience

Genesis 17:1-27          May 12, 2013          Link for audio/video/document

God declares circumcision to be a sign that focuses attention on the importance of Abraham’s offspring. Those of us who place our trust in Christ are the offspring of Abraham – we are sons of Abraham. W0hen the Spirit moves in us and convicts us of our sin and need for a Savior, we respond with immediate surrender, immediate obedience. When we trust in Christ’s work of dying in our place – dying the death that we deserve because of our sinful state – we will share in the promised blessings of life and hope and a future and eternity in the presence of our all-powerful, all-sovereign, all-supreme, “El-Shaddai” God.
