Blessed to be a Blessing

Genesis 12:1-3

God gets things back on track. That’s what he’s always done. That’s what he’ll always do. When God wants something, he gets what he wants. In the beginning, God wanted a good, flourishing, abundant creation. Because of our sin, it’s not that way. We’re not that way. And yet, God has been working ever since to make it that way again, to make us that way again. And he began the whole process, of all places, with a wandering nomad and his wife. They’re the starting point, the epicenter, ground zero of God’s entire redemption project, and our place in it too.
