""AND LOT WENT WITH HIM""
Pastor Tony Sutton
Gen 12:1 Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee
out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father's
house, unto a land that I will shew thee:
Gen 12:2 And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless
thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing:
Gen 12:3 And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that
curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be
Gen 12:4 So Abram departed, as the LORD had spoken unto him; and Lot
went with him: and Abram was seventy and five years old when he
departed out of Haran.
GET THEE OUT OF THY COUNTRY -
LEAVE THE SPIRITUAL AND OR PHYSICAL STATE IN WHICH YOU ARE IN. IF
YOUR SURROUNDINGS ARE NOT SUPPORTIVE OF A CHRISTIAN LIFE, THEN YOU
NEED TO RELOCATE.
AND FROM THY KINDRED
LUKE 9:23 WE ARE TO FORSAKE ALL, EVEN OUR KINSMEN. SOMETIMES WE MUST
DEPART FROM THOSE THAT ARE OUR KINDRED, IF THEY DON'T SHARE THE SAME
LOVE FOR GOD THAT WE DO. OUR FAMILY (WIFE/HUSBAND,CHILDREN) IS TOO
IMPORTANT FOR US TO JEOPARDIZE JUST TO REMAIN IN THE CIRCLE. LOT WAS
KINDRED AND MANY PROBLEMS FOLLOWED.
AND FROM THY FATHER'S HOUSE -
ALL TIES. THIS WORLD HOLDS NOTHING FOR US. The command God
gave to Abram, is much the same as the gospel call, for natural
affection must give way to Divine grace. Sin, and all the occasions
of it, must be forsaken; particularly bad company.
