Step one…Listen!

Genesis 12:1 HCSB
The Lord said to Abram: Go out from your land, your relatives, and your father’s house to the land that I will show you.

Pay Attention!

Genesis 12:2–3 HCSB
I will make you into a great nation, I will bless you, I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, I will curse those who treat you with contempt, and all the peoples on earth will be blessed through you.

Get on the road!

Genesis 12:4 HCSB
So Abram went, as the Lord had told him, and Lot went with him. Abram was 75 years old when he left Haran.

Don’t Look Back

Genesis 12:5–6 HCSB
He took his wife Sarai, his nephew Lot, all the possessions they had accumulated, and the people he had acquired in Haran, and they set out for the land of Canaan. When they came to the land of Canaan, Abram passed through the land to the site of Shechem, at the oak of Moreh. At that time the Canaanites were in the land.

Remember the map maker!

Genesis 12:6–8 HCSB
Abram passed through the land to the site of Shechem, at the oak of Moreh. At that time the Canaanites were in the land. Then the Lord appeared to Abram and said, “I will give this land to your offspring.” So he built an altar there to the Lord who had appeared to him. From there he moved on to the hill country east of Bethel and pitched his tent, with Bethel on the west and Ai on the east. He built an altar to Yahweh there, and he called on the name of Yahweh.
