“And in you all the families of the earth will be blessed” (Genesis 12:3).
Neither Israel nor the church is allowed to live the life of faith in isolation. Our personal faith is never just personal; it’s never just about you and God. We, who have been delivered out of our own barrenness, must now seek to meet the need of others. As we have experienced grace, we must be gracious; having received mercy, we must be merciful. An inward faith will make you more religious; an outward faith more Christlike.
