082 Worthy endeavors

As we saw yesterday, at the death of Abram’s father in Haran, the call to Abram (Abraham) was renewed. Its explicitly given, of course, in 12:2-3, but God’s call began in Ur (as seen in Acts 7), and the reality is that the call occurred much earlier in the line of Shem.  We learned this by reading a wider context and found the evidence all the way forward in the New Testament book of Acts.  I’m repeating a point made yesterday, but it’s a point worth repeating… read the whole of the Bible.  You’ll find lots there, if you personally spend the time and effort.  It’s all part of getting to know Him, and that’s a worthy call.
