Far From Happy and Far From Home: Where the Journey Begins

The Question is not: “where do we find Abram in this story?” The Question is: “where does God find Abram in this story?” For this is the story of the mission of God. The reason for our hope and joy is that we know that our God delights to save people who are lost and broken and far from Him. The story of Abraham is the story of a missional God who goes after the broken and the lost in the nations who have no knowledge of Him or their need of Him. He goes after them to send them after others.

Scripture References: Genesis 11:26

From Series: "From Brokenness to BLESSING: A Journey into the Heart of God"

The life of Abraham is a fascinating one because, as we will see, Abraham’s journey was not so much a journey to the land of Canaan but actually a journey towards heaven (see Hebrews 11:16). His destination is not so much an earthly one but a spiritual one. It’s a journey of a fatherless and heirless man into the presence and promise of God. It’s a journey into the very heart of God. God takes a broken family and a broken man and shows him that He will make him into a Father of many nations who reflects the very heart of God the Father Himself. This is an invitation to all of you to bring your brokenness and join us in our study of the life of Abraham. May the story of Abraham’s journey from brokenness to blessing become the story of all who find the hope of God by faith as he did.
