families of tho earth be blessed."

JUNIOn TOPIC A Mnn Who riccamo

INTEHMEDIATE AND SENIOR TOP
IC Abraham, a Religious Pioneer.
YOUNG PEOPLE AND ADULT TOPlO
Abraham, a Ilellglous I'lonuer.
I. Abraham's Ancestors (Josh. 21:2,
Abraham's people were, Idolnters.
Very likely as a young man. he himself
worshiped idols. Tradition furnishes us
with some Interesting stories touching
his struggle ngalnst idolatry. At nny
rate, ids experience wns such ns to well
qualify him to be the head of a people
whose God was the Lord. He knew how
hopelessly disastrous Idolatry was to
the morals of the people, nnd, there
fore, would be uble to lead them back
I J. Abraham's Call (Gen. 12:1,
cf. Acts 7:2-3).
God came to him In Ur of the Chal
dces nnd .said unto him:
1. "Get thee out of thy country-"
Ono Is tied to his country with a
Btrong bond. Abraham had lived long
enough to have formed strong attach
ments to his country.
2. "Get thee out from thy kindred."
Abrnhnm was not only to leave be
hind lilm his native land, but his rela
tives as well, even his father's house.
Since his kindred were Idolaters, ho
must leave them. Abrahnm was to
become a pilgrim, to be without a
home. Even in Cnnann, the only land
he ever owned, wns a burial place.
3. "Into the lnnd thnt I will show
thee." He was not told what or where
the land was. lie went out not know
ing whither he went (Ileb. 11 :S).
Wliile he dwelt in tents during his
earthly sojourn, yet "he looked for n
city which hath foundations whoso
builder nnd maker is God" (Heb.
8:10). And thus ho wns a typical be
liever called out from his family nnd
country, and renouncing Idolatry, he
walked by faith, testifying to his and
succeeding generations to the faithful
ness of God. It costs to obey God, but
there Is an abundant recompense.
III. God's Promise to Abraham
(Gen. 12:2-3; 1S:17-1S).
1. Tho Father of a Great Posterity
(v. 2). Tills has been literally fulfilled.
He wns not to go out primarily for
whnt he could get, but for what he
could do. The minister and mission
ary forget their own personal bless
ings In the supreme Joy of their con
verts who arc the fruits of their labor.
No name In nil history equals that of
Abraham In Its honorable influence.
Ills Is the name of honor nmong Jews,
Mohnmmedans nnd Christians. They
all acknowledge him as father.
2. A Blessing to Others (vv. 2. 3).
lie wns not only to become great nnd
to share God's blessings, but to be a
blessing to others. He has become n
blessing to countless multitudes. This
Is the prevailing law of the spiritual
life being blessed to bo a blessing.
Those who respond to this law become
the very touchstone of God, so precious
that God will bless them who bless
them, and curse those who curse them.
God mnkes common cause with Ills
people. So vitally is He one with
them thnt It Is a serious thing to mis
treat them. To mnltreat God's chil
dren Is to lift the hand ngalnst God.
No one who goes ngalnst Him can
prosper. Not only is this so with ref
erence to wilful acts against Ills chil
dren, but neglect or refusal to do good
to them. Christ regnrds all acts for
or against them as for or against
IV. God Testing Abraham (Gen.
Abraham's faith wne shown In thnt
he obeyed the call of God and left his
land and kindred, but his faith
reached Its highest point In offering
Isnnc. For ninny yenrs, ho had waited
for the fulfillment of God's promise as
to his heir. At last that promise was
a reality. Abraham's hope was not tho
ordinary hope which fills the heart of
every father, that his namo and work
may bo perpetuated through his son.
A new nation nnd the world's Savior
were to spring ifp from Abrnhnm
through this son. Through tills grent
ordeal, U faith responded enabling
him to believe thnt God would glvo
Isaac bnck from tho dead (Heb.
11:17-10). God tries nil Ills children.
