When God Calls

in Bible Characters God

When God calls, do you listen? Here's today's Bible Minute.

"Now the LORD had said to Abram: 'Get out of your country, from your kindred and from your father's house, to a land that I will show you.'" That's Genesis 12:1. Abram was in Ur of the Chaldees, south of the current city of Babylon.

God appeared to Abram and said, "I want you to leave this country behind. Leave your homeland." So Abram picked up and left his country. He didn't know where he was going. He just knew that God was leading him.

And God said, "I will make you a great nation; I will bless you and make your name great; and you shall be a blessing…and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed."

God called, Abraham obeyed. So what about you? For more resources to lead you forward in faith, come to backtothebible.org.
