Good Morning Warrior!
Word for the Day:
(Genesis 11:27 - 12:20)
“Leave All To Gain All”
Text: Genesis 12:1
“Now the LORD had said to Abram:
“Get out of your country,
From your family
And from your father’s house,
To a land that I will show you.”
The Command to “Leave All To Gain All,” is on our menu this morning for Breakfast.
Abram was to leave his country, his extended family; and go to a land that God “would show him.” If Abram obeyed God, then God would give him a land, a nation, and a blessing not only for himself and his family - but for all the families of the earth!
Abram had a choice to make; stay with his extended family of idolaters in a land of lawlessness - or to obey God and Leave All to Gain All.
This is our Choice today; who will we Love and Serve Unconditionally? God or the devil.
“For when you were slaves of sin, you were free in regard to righteousness.
What fruit did you have then in the things of which you are now ashamed? For the end of those things is death.
But now having been set free from sin, and having become slaves of God, you have your fruit to holiness, and the end, everlasting life.
For the wages of sin is deaths, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Rom.6:20-23).
In other words we must Leave All (sin) To Gain All (Righteousness, Peace, and Joy in the Holy Spirit) Rom.14:17.
We Obeyed God’s Command to leave All “our old ways of sin,” by confessing and repenting of sin. Now Holy Spirit is leading us through the perils and testing of our Faith, like He led Abram through:
“By faith Abraham obeyed when he was called to go out to the place which he would receive as an inheritance. And he went out, not knowing where he was going.
By faith he dwelt in the land of promise as in a foreign country, dwelling in tents with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise;
for he waited for the city which has foundations, whose builder and maker is God.(Heb.11:8-10).
Listen up Warrior! You and I made this choice to Leave All to Gain All - and now we follow and imitate our Commander Jesus Christ as He leads us through the battlefields of faith to “our City which has foundations, whose builder and maker is God.”
You and I have Decided to Follow Jesus, No Turning Back!
Stay The Course Warrior! Oooh Rah!
