The Calling To A Life of Faith | Pastor Dodjiel Hechanova | June 23, 2024

Genesis 12:1–9 

1 Now the Lord said to Abram, “Go from your country and your kindred and your father’s house to the land that I will show you. 

2 And I will make of you a great nation, and I will bless you and make your name great, so that you will be a blessing. 

3 I will bless those who bless you, and him who dishonors you I will curse, and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.” 

4 So Abram went, as the Lord had told him, and Lot went with him. Abram was seventy-five years old when he departed from Haran. 

5 And Abram took Sarai his wife, and Lot his brother’s son, and all their possessions that they had gathered, and the people that they had acquired in Haran, and they set out to go to the land of Canaan. When they came to the land of Canaan, 

6 Abram passed through the land to the place at Shechem, to the oak of Moreh. At that time the Canaanites were in the land. 

7 Then the Lord appeared to Abram and said, “To your offspring I will give this land.” So he built there an altar to the Lord, who had appeared to him. 

8 From there he moved to the hill country on the east of Bethel and pitched his tent, with Bethel on the west and Ai on the east. And there he built an altar to the Lord and called upon the name of the Lord. 

9 And Abram journeyed on, still going toward the Negeb. 

James 2:23

23 and the Scripture was fulfilled that says, “Abraham believed God, and it was counted to him as righteousness”—and he was called a friend of God. 

Psalm 25:14

14 The friendship of the LORD is for those who fear him,

and he makes known to them his covenant.

Colossians 3:1–3

1 If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. 

2 Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. 

3 For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. 

Hebrews 11:8–10

8 By faith Abraham obeyed when he was called to go out to a place that he was to receive as an inheritance. And he went out, not knowing where he was going. 

9 By faith he went to live in the land of promise, as in a foreign land, living in tents with Isaac and Jacob, heirs with him of the same promise. 

10 For he was looking forward to the city that has foundations, whose designer and builder is God. 

Ephesians 2:8–10

8 For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, 

9 not a result of works, so that no one may boast. 

10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.
