After sin entered the world, things seemed to be spiraling down. In the midst of that darkness, God appeared to Abram, and made some astounding promises. He promised to give Abram land, that he would have a large family, and that he would be blessed and bless others. We see in this passage that God’s blessings are to be shared. Just as Abram was called to go, so Christians are called to go and share the blessings of God with the world around them. We also see that the promises of God are motivation to obey and trust God in all of our lives. Finally, we see that the promises of God lead us to worship God, even in the darkest places of our world.
