The First Step

Passage: Genesis 12:1-8 15:1-6, Hebrews 11:8-12, Matthew 9:9-13

[We apologize for the poor audio quality]

“Abraham believed the Lord, and the Lord declared him righteous because of his faith.” Taking that first step into the unknown is a daunting task. The proverb, “Look before you leap!” makes sense, but often our obedience to God demands the uncertainty of not having a clue where that leap will take you. Abraham trusted without knowing for sure; Matthew followed, without knowing where Jesus would lead. Can we do the same?

Two Mission India videos played before the sermon:
