Genesis 13-15, John 5
14Afterward Jesus found him in the temple and said to him, “See, you are well! Sin no more, that nothing worse may happen to you.” This one really stuck with me!! Jesus is so kind and loving that when we are cynical of his power and sovereignty that he waits on us to come to understand and simply respond with “See, you are well!” in such a loving and friendly way. Almost as if to say, “I still remember you and your struggles, and I still love you and was waiting for you to find me.” So much grace and love in such a small phrase.
“And He brought him outside and said … ‘number the stars, if you are able to … So shall your offspring be’. And he believed the Lord, and He counted it to him as righteousness” (Genesis 15:5-6). Abraham believed God when His promise seemed humanly impossible. God’s promise was more sure than everything he could see around him. He believed in the face of common sense that says, “it’s just not possible”. Oh God, give me such faith.
