listen now Gary Hay 2015-09-13

Sermon Notes:
God develops His image in Abraham. Now he is known for being the “father of our faith”.

1. The invitation to leave his old life. (Gen. 12:1)

2. The promise of an incredible destiny. (Gen. 12:2-3)

3. The promise of inheritance. (Gen. 12:7)

4. Rescue from stupid decisions. (Gen. 12:10-20; 20:1-18)

5. Blessing by Melchizedek. (Gen. 14:18-20)

6. God covenants with him and changes his name. (Gen.15: 7-21; 17: 1-10)

7. Initiation into partnership. (Gen. 18:17-33)

8. Ishmael yields to Isaac. (Gen. 16 & 21)

9. The ultimate sacrifice. (Gen. 22:1-18)

In the end God so closely identifies with Abraham that his life is a prophetic picture of God Himself!
