They Saw the Light - Abraham Part 1

Come into my heart
Come into my heart
Come into my heart, Lord Jesus
Come into today
Come in to stay
Come into my heart, Lord Jesus.
God's promises continue to be new every day.  Light your first two candles.  Lighting the first reminds us of what God has accomplished in us.  The second, as we light it for the first time, reminds us that God is bringing forth fresh light upon us today

But out of the multitude, God would choose a single man through whom the promise would continue.  A man, nine decades old, and his wife, ten years younger, would be chosen to parent the promise.  Abram and Sarai were called out of Ur and promised three things—they would receive a land set apart for holy use; they would be blessing with offspring beyond count; and finally the Word declared:

“And all peoples on the earth will be blessed through you.” 

God made an irrevocable covenant with this man and his offspring.  Deliverance would come forth from his bloodline. Through the offspring of Abraham, the light would come.  In the midst of darkness, Abraham saw the light.*
