Promise to one was a promise to the world

promise to one is a promise to the world“The Lord had said to Abram, “Leave your native country, your relatives, and your father’s family, and go to the land that I will show you.  I will make you into a great nation. I will bless you and make you famous, and you will be a blessing to others.”  –  Genesis 12: 1-2

How was it possible that one man would become a blessing to all of the families throughout the earth?

It is unlikely that Abraham understood the global implications of such a promise.  It would remain a mystery to him I am sure.  After years passing by without seeing a single sign of promise, there sure would have been moments of pondering.

What is our question today – what should we be looking for as stewards of Abraham’s promised blessing by faith in Christ?
