Advent Meditations Week 1--Hope

December 2: Genesis 15:1-6

  • What did Abram do to deserve God’s promise of a son? How did he become righteous before God?
  • What is the only way for us to become righteous? See Romans 3:20-22 & Philippians 3:7-10. Are you, like Paul, passionately seeking to know Christ more and more?

Genesis 15:1-6English Standard Version (ESV)

God's Covenant with Abram

15 After these things the word of the Lord came to Abram in a vision: “Fear not, Abram, I am your shield; your reward shall be very great.”But Abram said, “O Lord God, what will you give me, for I continue[a]childless, and the heir of my house is Eliezer of Damascus?” And Abram said, “Behold, you have given me no offspring, and a member of my household will be my heir.” And behold, the word of the Lord came to him: “This man shall not be your heir; your very own son[b] shall be your heir.” And he brought him outside and said, “Look toward heaven, and number the stars, if you are able to number them.” Then he said to him, “So shall your offspring be.” And he believed the Lord, and he counted it to him as righteousness.
